In democracies we rely on elections — Proof of Votes — and hope all goes well. In Bitcoin power transitions peacefully through Proof of Work.
The Bitcoin computer is the most powerful computer across planet Earth and orbiting in space. It requires the energy of an entire country to power it. This means security, there is virtually no way for an individual or group of individuals to 51% attack it. Being decentralized composed of nodes and miners connected through the Internet, satellite, ham radio or any medium of communication the operators use, only an act of God can stop it. No human has any idea who, or what, the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto is. Bitcoin is the hardest most sound form of money in history. There will only ever be 21 million Bitcoin. Most of which is claimed, and some permanently lost. It is perhaps like a game of musical chairs, except you do not have to get up if you don’t sell. When 99% of the world’s ~8 billion people wake up to what Bitcoin is, there will most likely be a squeeze that will value Bitcoin as unpurchasable by infinite fiat any longer. Do you have your chair?
