Hello
I'm new in this weird world of bt..

What I have learned..
BT is somehow like pgp.. it's a code that can be fractioned..
To store / own bt you need a wallett..
Each wallett have an unique address and that's were bt are linked..
Hem.. Hum.. I sent 300 us$ to this guy but still nothing shows up in my wallett am I being burned ?

  aint life grand ?
The block chain is the main innovation of Bitcoin. It is the first distributed timestamping system.

Bitcoin is like PGP in that in uses public-key cryptography for digital signatures, but differs in all other respects. I don't know what you mean about "code that can be fractioned"...

Actually, bitcoins are stored in the blockchain, a public ledger that everyone has access to. Addresses link bitcoins to public keys, and the wallet stores the correspoding private keys which are used to sign transactions.

If you don't know anything about him other than that he is referred to as "this guy", then it's a distinct possibility... However, it's also possible your software hasn't fully synchronised with the network (which will take a very long time (usually several hours) the first time you do it, so be patient). Assuming you're using the standard client, you will see a green check mark in the bottom right corner when it is fully synchronised. If you're seeing circling yellow arrows instead, you just need to wait a while (assuming there's nothing wrong with your connection, which you check by hovering the mouse over the icon immediately to the left of the circling arrows - as long as you've got at least 1 active connection, you're good).

Will pretend to do unverifiable things (while actually eating an enchilada-style burrito) for bitcoins: 1K6d1EviQKX3SVKjPYmJGyWBb1avbmCFM4
