A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

LToV Socialists, if labor = value, then explain Bitcoin.
If labor is equal to value, then why is Bitcoin worth nearly $11k at the time of writing? Yes, labor in the form of processing power is necessary to generate them in the first place, but after that, their value varies wildly. If you mined 1 bitcoin back in early 2013, you'd have a coin worth about $15. But if you held that coin for just 4 years, it'd be worth nearly $20k, over 130,000% more. No new labor was put into it whatsoever, but it was suddenly worth a car, because the market decided so. What gives? Shouldn't Bitcoin be worth an entirely consistent amount, or at least a stable amount? You could make the argument that Bitcoin is worth nothing, because price doesn't imply value, but doesn't that mean the labor used to create it is worth nothing as well? Am I missing something, or does Bitcoin just completely shatter the LToV?

Transactions - private keys. A transaction is a transfer of value between Bitcoin wallets that gets included in the block chain. Bitcoin wallets keep a secret piece of data called a private key or seed, which is used to sign transactions, providing a mathematical proof that they have come from the owner of the wallet. The signature also prevents the transaction from being altered by anybody ... The best way to explain how Bitcoin works is to go through an example of how things function behind the scenes when a user sends or receives a transaction on the network. Let’s run through both sides of a transaction from the perspective of two hypothetical users: Bob and Alice. In Bitcoin’s realm, this is called Bitcoin mining.
