12 years ago today, a person or group of people calling them selves #Satoshi Nakamoto published a white paper to a cryptography mailing list. The paper was titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.” Today, #Bitcoin stands more popular than ever and has ushered in a financial revolution as many companies invest into a #blockchain ecosystem. While many other “#altcoins” or alertnative coins continue to try to overtake #Bitcoin, there has never been a currency more popular than the original. Since #Satoshi published their/his paper to the world, the author has remained anonymous for over 12 years. While it is unclear if #Satoshi is able to enjoy what they have created today, it is obvious that #Bitcoin will live on to challenge the traditional financial institution.
I'm Jimmy. I have been around computers my whole life. I first heard about Bitcoin in 2013, but wasn't able to buy any until 2015/2016. Since then I have become immersed in different communities and have learned so much. Aside from my passion for crypto-currency, I enjoy flying planes! I am a commercial pilot and a flight instructor. I have a Bachelor's degree in Aviation Administration and am currently pursuing an Associate's in Computer Science for fun! You can find me on discord @ slimjim#1694
