Experimental digital currency.

Overview

Bitcoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is also the name of the open source software which enables the use of this currency.

The software is a community-driven Open Source project, released under the MIT license.

Back in the seventeenth century there used to be a Dutch app. called Tulips that was aimed at pretty much the same audience.

Yeah. One of 2 annoyances solved. 0.7.0 eats up muss less CPU. URI-Support was re-enabled on windows-platform. Not so on the mac. They should really fix that part as well. But it's great to be catching up with the keychain and not have the fans go crazy all the time. :)

Awesome concept. I'd love to see broader acceptance for this. Minors: * URI support on the mac is currently still missing. Wonder why, since it would be great to improve adaptation. * Client eats up some CPU while catching up. Hope they can tweak that in the future.

Hi Monkeyjunkey, I've been reading about bitcoins, and maybe you can answer this; so you use "actual money" to get bitcoins. Then you can spend the bitcoins like currency. So my question is, or actually two questions, where can you spend them, and if someone pays you with bitcoins, how can you convert that into other currency? My other concern with this is, they call it "Experimental digital currency". What happens to your money if they experiment doesn't work out? Seems like a lot of risk involved.

I don't know where you got that screenshot, but it's not what this software looks like.

I think the developer just used static to obscure personal data instead of the usual blurring.

Gosh, I sure hate the name but the idea is brilliant; especially considering the meltdown of the euro and dollar.
