Hi,

I started studying Bitcoin around August/September 2012. Then, in October I've written a better FAQ to focus on things that I thought were more important for beginners.

I'm posting it here now because it turned out, I cannot post to the main discussion boards yet. So I guess I have to get some reputation first :-)

Here is the FAQ. Hope you will find it useful:

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Some follow-up to my FAQ: some common bullshit that people say when trying to explain or understand Bitcoin.

Interesting read. Reminds me of a particular anime about why currency will be digital and without government interference.

Why not. It would be nice if you put a link back to my page.
