2008 erblickte eine neue weltweite Währung das Licht der Welt der BitCoin. Eine Währung, die weder von Menschen kontrolliert noch abgeschafft werden kann. Was zuerst wie ein Spielzeug für Computer-Nerds aussah, hat sich erstaunlicherweise zu einem weltweit politisch brisanten Thema entwickelt und mittlerweile vielen Menschen die Möglichkeit geboten, dem Schuldengeldkreislauf zu entkommen. Zugleich ist diese Technik in der Lage, Werte sicher aufzubewahren und damit Banken und Verwaltungen (weitgehend) überflüssig zu machen. Der BitCoin ist so sicher, dass es seit 8 Jahren keinem Computerhacker gelungen ist, in das System einzudringen, es keine Regierung geschafft hat (jemals schaffen wird), ihn zu verbieten oder abzuschalten. Dieses Buch soll Ihnen die Gelegenheit geben, sich ein eigenes, differenzierteres Bild vom BitCoin fernab der Kritik durch Medien, Regierung und Lobbyisten zu machen. Erfahren Sie in diesem Buch mehr über Entstehung, aktuellen Entwicklungen bis hin zu steuerlichen Aspekten des BitCoins.
The BitCoin generation:How computer nerds made the world a better place Jörg Molt, Union Design Group Publishing Bullay-Germany
What is a bitcoin? Why is it important? Knowing the answers to these two simple questions may determine the fortunes of an entire generation. In this brief volume, we dedicate the first section to a brief exploration of the phenomenon of the bitcoin and its advantages and disadvantages as a medium of exchange and store of value. We also briefly explore the moral implications of chasing the monetary premium that the bitcoin has increasingly come to represent. Having arrived at the conclusion that the bitcoin has a place in conducting trade, we dedicate the second section to what we call a roadmap to bitcoin acceptance in which we guide the user to the online tools necessary to begin to conduct business in bitcoins. This guide is as practical as it is nontechnical. Technical explanations alone cannot adequately describe bitcoin´s usefulness in conducting trade. For there is one reason and one reason only that the bitcoin, which is nothing more than a series of hashtags - mere zeros and ones encrypted and stored on digital media - has soared in value in recent weeks against the world´s national currencies. That reason is that the bitcoin is now the primary beneficiary of the monetary premium that is being forfeited by these same national currencies by virtue of their coordinated programs of rapid debasement. This fact seems to be lost upon much of the world, yet it is happening nonetheless. It is our hope that this volume will help those with a technological understanding of the bitcoin see it through the lens of a monetary theorist, as well as inform merchants and traders of both the importance and limitations of bitcoin as a digital currency. 1.

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2018 im Fachbereich BWL - Allgemeines, Note: 1,3, Fachhochschule Kaiserslautern Standort Zweibrücken, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Zielsetzung dieser wissenschaftlichen Arbeit liegt darin, anhand der Konfrontierung von Chancen und Risiken ein aussagekräftiges Statement über zukünftige Erfolgsaussichten des Bitcoins zu erhalten. Insbesondere sollen dabei die Folgen und existierende Risiken für das klassische Bankensystem behandelt werden. Für die Eingliederung des Bitcoins wird am Anfang in Kapitel 2 die Frage geklärt, was Geld ist, in welchen Formen es aufgeführt wird und wie es entsteht. Das dritte Kapitel befasst sich mit dem breitgefächerten Themengebiet Kryptowährungen und dem geschichtlichen Aspekt sowie dem Hintergrund der noch junghaften Währung Bitcoin. Bis heute gilt diese Währung als Pionier in seinem Bereich und wird oft als die erste Generation bezeichnet. Dennoch verfügen weitere virtuelle Währungen, die als Alternative zum Bitcoin betrachtet werden können, über ein enormes Wachstumspotenzial und hochgradige Innovationskraft. Kapitel 4 widmet sich einer repräsentativen Umfrage, dessen Kernfrage die zukünftigen Erfolgschancen des Bitcoins sowie damit verbunden die gesellschaftliche Akzeptanz der digitalen Währung untersucht. Um den Bitcoin und das dahinterliegende Netzwerk zu verstehen, ist es von essenzieller Bedeutung, die technische Grundkonzeption zu erläutern, die im fünften Teil dieser wissenschaftlichen Arbeit verankert ist. Der sechste Abschnitt impliziert den Bitcoin aus dem Blickwinkel der Bankenbranche. Diese umfasst die Fragestellung, ob Bitcoin als Geld definiert werden kann, sowie rechtliche Rahmenbedingungen. Anschließend wird die digitale Währung Bitcoin als Spekulationsobjekt untersucht und potenzielle Bedrohungen für den Bankenbereich erläutert. Nachdem die allgemeinen Risiken und Chancen von Bitcoin in Abschnitt sieben und acht erläutert wurden, wird der Kern dieser Arbeit mit einer Schlussbetrachtung abgerundet, der primäre Handlungsempfehlungen für Kreditinstitutionen sowie die Allgemeinheit liefern soll.
Litecoin is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and open-source software project released under the MIT/X11 license. Creation and transfer of coins is based on an open source cryptographic protocol and is not managed by any central authority. While inspired by and in most regards technically nearly identical to Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin has some minor technical differences compared to Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies. Litecoin also has almost zero payment cost. Litecoin was released via an open-source client on GitHub on October 7, 2011, by Charlie Lee, a former Google employee. The Litecoin network went live on October 13, 2011. It was a fork of the Bitcoin Core client, differing primarily by having a decreased block generation time (2.5 minutes), increased maximum number of coins, different hashing algorithm (scrypt, instead of SHA-256), and a slightly modified GUI. During the month of November 2013, the aggregate value of Litecoin experienced massive growth which included a 100% leap within 24 hours. Litecoin reached a one billion dollar market capitalization in November 2013. By late November 2017, its market capitalization was US $4,600,081,733 ($85.18 per coin). In May 2017, Litecoin became the first of the top five (by market cap) cryptocurrencies to adopt Segregated Witness. Later in May of the same year, the first Lightning Network transaction was completed through Litecoin, transferring 0.00000001 LTC from Zürich to San Francisco in under one second. 1.
