The really big trouble

I really don’t know, at this time, if anyone is willing to pay a little bit of cost and bet with me.

The core feature of Bit coin is “decentralization”, which enables trust without a trusted center. When we use Aliped, We Chat, or bank transfers, we essentially need to trust a central institution that will keep our books. Our money transactions are essentially just a change of numbers in the books of this central institution. This has several huge drawbacks. On the one hand, if the central institution’s books were destroyed, everyone’s money would go up in smoke and the financial system would collapse. On the other hand, the central institution also controls all those who use the ledger by controlling it. The hegemony of the dollar, the shrinking wealth of the people due to inflation, the harvesting of financial predators, and the control of the common people by the ruling class and vested interests are all achieved by this centralized ledger. All kinds of human wealth disparity and class oppression are also essentially because of this rule-making and rule-using advantage of the upper class. The emergence of bit coin means that we don’t need to trust a central institution anymore, we just need to run the bit coin program, and the people who run the bit coin program all over the world are connected into a network, and they can automatically maintain a real and reliable, completely consistent ledger all over the world. The implications for money, finance, the Internet, and even human organization are undoubtedly disruptive. It is similar to a world currency, similar to breaking the boundaries of borders, nationalities, and skin color, and building a community of human destiny around the world. At the same time, the emergence of Bit coin has also undoubtedly greatly affected the original political landscape of mankind, which means that money can no longer be controlled by the authorities, people can completely bypass the powers that be, and truly have the autonomy to store, carry, and use their own wealth freely, and freely communicate with people on the other side of the world to establish trade and commerce. On the one hand, this will breed chaos such as money laundering, black market, etc. On the other hand, it is also a great liberation for human beings, comparable to the communist idea.
