This is the story of the shoulders Satoshi stood on to bring about the Bitcoin Revolution.
Created by Sam Callahan
The story of Bitcoin begins long before Satoshi sent his white paper to the Cryptography Mailing List in 2008. The fight for privacy and freedom in the digital age started with the Cryptographers, and then the mantle was taken up by the Cypherpunks, and now, the torch has been passed to the Bitcoiners.
Satoshi was no doubt a genius, but he didn’t invent something new from scratch. Rather Satoshi cleverly combined existing technologies to create something new and groundbreaking, Bitcoin.
Sam Callahan works at Swan Bitcoin in Client Services and Research. He is dedicated to educating people about Bitcoin and spends his time it writing, thinking, and attending meetups in order to help people understand this new, disruptive technology.
