52 of the Best Bitcoin Quotes – From All Over The World

Bitcoin quotes from programmers

“The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that’s required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currency is full of breaches of that trust. Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with barely a fraction in reserve.” –

Satoshi Nakamoto

(founder of Bitcoin)

“So my view’s quite clear. I believe cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin is the first example, I believe they’re going to change the world.” –

Richard Brown

(executive architect of IBM)

“Bitcoin has a couple of things going for it: one is that it is distributed, with no single point of failure, no ‘mint’, no company with offices that can be subpoenaed and arrested and shut down.” –

Hal Finney

(first person to receive a Bitcoin transaction)

“Trusted third parties are

security

holes.” –

“What we want is fully anonymous, ultra low transaction cost, transferable units of exchange. If we get that going… the banks will become the obsolete dinosaurs they deserve to become.” –

Bitcoin quotes from authors

“Bitcoin is the beginning of something great: a currency without a government, something necessary and imperative.” –

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

(author of

The Black Swan

)

“Some of the most popular tech companies were ones such as Airbnb and Uber that openly challenged cumbersome regulations like those imposed on hotels and taxis. In the financial networks that Bitcoin was hoping to challenge, tech investors… saw just another set of regulations that could be disrupted to create a more efficient market. If anything, the financial industry seemed even more open to disruption because the incumbent businesses were so afraid of breaking the rules.” –

Nathaniel Popper

(author of

Digital Gold

)

“…control of a currency is one of the most powerful tools a government wields; ask anybody in Ireland, Portugal, Greece or Cyprus who lived through those countries’ recent financial crises. Bitcoin promises to take at least some of that power away from governments and hand it to the people. That alone augurs significant political, cultural and economic clashes.” –

Paul Vigna & Michael J. Casey

(authors of

The Age of Cryptocurrency

)

“The growth and importance of cryptocurrency and cryptocomputing rivals the early growth of the commercial Internet and web, and the technical and economic revolution that will result is perhaps even more significant than the first phase of the Internet.” –

Chris Burniske & Jack Tatar

(authors of

Cryptoassets

)

“You don’t need to ask anyone if your application can be published on the Internet. You don’t need to ask anyone to completely subvert a new industry with your information technology. On Bitcoin, you don’t need to ask anyone to invent a new financial instrument, a new payment system, a new service. You can just do it.” –

Andreas Antonopoulos

(high-profile Bitcoin advocate, author of

The Internet of Money

, and

Mastering Bitcoin

)

Bitcoin quotes from business titans

“Bitcoin gives us, for the first time, a way for one Internet user to transfer a unique piece of digital property to another Internet user, such that the transfer is guaranteed to be safe and secure, everyone knows that the transfer has taken place, and nobody can challenge the legitimacy of the transfer. The consequences of this breakthrough are hard to overstate.” –

Bitcoin quotes from Bitcoin entrepreneurs

Wences Casares

(Argentine technology entrepreneur)

This is both exciting, and scary, because we’re breaking amazing ground and we’ll inevitably be in the crosshairs for doing so.” –

Erik Voorhees

(BitInstant / Satoshi Dice)

“The reason we’re all here is that the current financial system is outdated.” –

Charlie Shrem
