James West: My guest this segment is Andreas M. Antonopoulous. He is the author of Mastering Bitcoin. Andreas, thank you for joining me today.
Andreas Antonopoulos: Thank you so much for having me.
James West: Andreas, you spend significantly all of your time in the Blockchain/bitcoin universe. What is the difference – and pardon me for this most elemental question – between Blockchain and Bitcoin?
Andreas Antonopoulos: Bitcoin is the original technology that uses a data structure called the Blockchain as one of its underlying components. And it uses that in order to achieve certain properties, and these properties are decentralization, censorship resistance, borderless operation, neutrality, and openness. That's the definition.
