    Bitcoin uses a curious accounting structure called a UTXO — an Unspent Transaction Output. All UTXOs are timestamped by the transaction/block in which they were created. Since all bitcoin in existence is contained in some UTXO, this means that all bitcoins have an age: not the age/time when that bitcoin was first mined, but when it was last used in a transaction ...

    The crypto correction of 2018 has been brutal, Bitcoin went from mainstream hype of December 2017, to being banned along with ICOs in Crypto Ads by Facebook, Google, Twitter and Snapchat with plummeting value and consumer search.

    Bitcoin reached as low as $6,600 on April 6th, but is now nearly back up to 10k, but something strange is going on, even as the SEC buckles down ...

    Let’s Destroy Bitcoin
    Three ways Bitcoin could be brought down, co-opted, or made irrelevant
