Coverage from a local bitcoin meetup in Pittsburgh.

It's great when reporters take a human interest angle on bitcoin (alas, it requires actually getting out of their chairs so it's few and far between). eg:
Quote
In Pittsburgh, the bitcoin faithful are few, but they are fervent in their support. This month, about 15 local bitcoin enthusiasts met at a restaurant in Station Square to talk about the currency's future.
Nicholas Mross, 30, a freelance filmmaker and videographer who lives in Sewickley Heights, was there to film the meeting for his documentary "The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin."

Thank you Kaitlynn Riely.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Bitcoin, according to its website, is a digital, encrypted currency
Should I be made to believe that Bitcoin uses encryption? Then how would we be able to have access to the blockchain if it was encrypted  Huh

They must have read somewhere that it is possible to encrypt one's wallet for extra protection against people having access to one's computer or viruses or Trojans attempting to steal one's Bitcoins.

Journalists who can't tell the difference between encryption and cryptography need to learn!!


There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.

What about the use of a hyphen-minus (-) instead of an en dash (–) in the title? I thought you'd be first to notice Tongue.
