From 1993 to 2009 Bill Gates invested $1B+ into Encarta the online encyclopedia but was eventually crushed by Wikipedia. This should be a lesson for financial institutions trying to understand Bitcoin. Currently BTC is where Wikipedia was in the early 2000`s. Watch out banks.

''' You're confused. I'm not calling BTC "Bitcoin Core", but Wuille [is]1 a Bitcoin Core developer:
Peter Wuille is a Bitcoin Core developer and the co-founder of Blockstream. He is #2 in terms of commits to Bitcoin Core and is responsible for important improvements to Bitcoin like BIP 66, libsecp256k1, and Segregated Witness.
Bitcoin Core on [wikipedia]2 :
Bitcoin Core is free and open-source software that serves as a bitcoin node (the set of which form the bitcoin network) and provides a bitcoin wallet which fully verifies payments. It is considered to be bitcoin's reference implementation and is the most used implementation by a large margin.
Cuba, Iran, Russia, etc. are removed from Coinbase's country list when trying to donate BTC to Wikipedia. Wtf Coinbase? Bitcoin is global. I live in one of those countries.
I was about to give money to Wikipedia but they won't even give me the option to input where I'm donating from because Coinbase's checkout system where you write your name/address doesn't include at least Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Russia (didn't check for others) in their list of countries that they allow you to select from. Are they not allowed to take donations from such countries? Bitcoin is global and so is the information found on Wikipedia. I wouldn't know a lot if it wasn't for Wikipedia and am grateful for it, but if they and Coinbase don't recognize all countries then shame on them. I live in one of these places and I hope to see this fixed. It puts people like me who want to donate off. Picture
Wikipedia page on communication protocols has list of examples that mentions Ripple (XRP) as its example for a payment protocol, but not Bitcoin (BTC), even though BTC is the first and largest cryptographic payment protocol. Why?
Here is a link to the Wikipedia article: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communication_protocol Shouldn't this be fixed to have Bitcoin on the list instead of Ripple? It seems like a biased Wikipedia entry made by a Ripple supporteinvestor. It would be like putting Jack in the Box as an example of a fast food restaurant on a list of restaurant types instead of McDonalds.
Remember when legacy bitcoin leader and Wikipedia mole Greg Maxwell claimed to be getting an ulcer from the stress of btc? Glad to here he is all better and celebrating with champaign about the fees and full blocks
And yes yes, We all know ulcers are caused by h pylori, but greg was never one for facts
[Hiring] $50 paid in BTC for wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin modification
I will pay $50 USD (paid in bitcoin) for having the Wikipedia page on bitcoin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin) have the following modification added after the first paragraph: "Instead of storing actual coins, a distributed public database keeps a record of all timestamped and confirmed transactions between bitcoin addresses. For the transactions to enter this public ledger the signed transactions need to be broadcasted, validated and accepted by the bitcoin network, to avoid any incongruence and double spending. Bitcoins only exist as balances associated with bitcoin addresses as a result of previous transactions in the sense that you can trace the chain of valid transactions until you reach a special transaction called "coinbase", i.e. some minted bitcoins that enter circulation as scheduled. To allow value to be split and combined, transactions contain multiple inputs and outputs. The output values of previous transactions will be referenced as input values of future ones. Previous transaction outputs are referenced as new transaction inputs and transactions simply allocate funds to a new owner that can then spend them in a new transaction." [This is the first paragraph] Bitcoin is a worldwide cryptocurrency and digital payment system:3 called the first decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central repository or single administrator.:1 It was invented by an unknown person or group of people under the name Satoshi Nakamoto and released as open-source software in 2009. The system is peer-to-peer, and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary.:4 These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.
[new paragraph inserted here] "(...)"]<<<
[keep all the rest after it] Bitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services. As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment. Bitcoin can also be held as an investment. According to research produced by Cambridge University in 2017, there are 2.9 to 5.8 million unique users using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of them using bitcoin. (...)
How is it that https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_commerce and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_payment and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_peer-to-peer_processes don't even mention cryptocurrency - let alone Bitcoin (Cash)? /r/btc
After seven years in Bitcoin, I have never been more confident that this network is now absolutely unstoppable. Nothing short of an extinction level event can stop Bitcoin from slowly but surely growing as a global, agnostic, alternative network for storing and transferring value.
Back in 2013 when the entire market cap hit $1 Billion for the first time, it was really scary to put a considerable amount of money in BTC. You might like Bitcoin and find it interesting but doubt would still creep up in your mind about its staying power and the fact that one bug could bring it all down. Mt. Gox got hacked, 800,000 BTC stolen, it crashed from $1200 to $190 by 2015, so how do you even believe that 5 years later it would be a sustained $200+ billion market? Yet here we are. As long as the Bitcoin blockchain is churning out new blocks of unstoppable transactions, that's all that matters. Naysayers don't understand that this is all Bitcoin needs to do: Churn out new blocks every ten minutes. And with every new block, a monumental amount of energy and work is stacked on top of the previous block, and so on, and so forth, making it stronger. At 99.98% uptime for 11 years, it's sticky enough to now last much longer than that. This network will be transferring and storing trillions of dollars within this decade and beyond.
