  • How PayPal is a future victim of the design advantages of Bitcoin, and how PayPal joining forces with Bitcoin may only delay the inevitable
  • How Bitcoin is made, and how it has a record of security fiat (paper) currency only dreams of.
  • How Bitcoin is transitioning to a global currency, and the growing pains that go along with that growth.
  • How adding major endorsements and partnership with mega-corporations like Microsoft, Dell, Wikipedia and PayPal hurts Bitcoin's value in the short-term, and how they strengthen it long-term.
