Me and Bitcoin

When I first read Bitcoin paper I rushed to analyze its source code. I got fascinated for its simplicity. But also I found many things for improvement, both in the economic, cryptographic and protocol related areas.

This blog aim is to provide clues for Bitcoin improvement but also to build the infrastructure for new crypto-currencies. I dream of a future with an ecosystem of crypto-currencies, even some of the government-backed. I plan to take active part in this future.

I hope you enjoy redesigning Bitcoin as I do.
