I can't remember a nuttier weekend in the history of Bitcoin than this one. That's because the action gets more exciting by the day, with deeper plots, more options, growing complexities, and financial and personal drama all around.
You know why? Because this technology matters enormously for the future of the world. It's Day One in the birth of a new way of doing business.
It's extremely hard to write about this for the uninitiated without seeming to speak Klingon, but here is my attempt.
My own Twitter and instant messaging blew up with questions, assertions, declarations, and anathemas. I loved every minute, but that's because I enjoy this world. Outsiders just getting into Bitcoin must be completely confused or even terrified.
I can only imagine what it must be like for someone who ventured into Bitcoin within the last 30 days. They must be wondering what kind of circus this is, especially if these people became curious and started examining the vibrant sector of Bitcoin news organizations. You can read this material all day and leave more confused than ever.
