Queries about bitcoin :
How Did It Start ?
• In 2009 A technical paper was posted on the internet by Satoshi Nakamoto titled
Bitcoin: A Peer-to- Peer Electronic Cash System
• It described a system of cryptocurrency that was not backed by any government or any form of
existing currency.
• Interestingly, there is no such person. It’s a pseudonym.
Where Do Bitcoins Come From ?
• Bitcoin is based on solving an encryption formula which requires extreme amounts of
computing power.
 Each time you solve a portion of the formula you earn a “Bit Coin.”
 Websites like Deepbit.net help you set up the mining formula.
 Companies began to sell hardware called gate array miners to enhance the
processing speed.
 Only 21 million Bit Coins will ever exist
• Nearly all Bitcoins have been mined and are now in circulation.
How are Bitcoins created -
Mining process
• Miners use special software to solve math problems (Bitcoin algorithm), and upon completing
the task they receive certain amount of coins.
• They are created each time a user discovers new block.
• The rate of block creation is approximately consistent with 50 % reduction every four years.
• Supply growth -12.5 bitcoins per block (approximately every ten minutes) until mid 2020, and
then afterwards 6.25 bitcoins per block for 4 years until next halving. This halving continues
until 2110–40, when 21 million bitcoins will have been issued.

Why is all the Money Flowing into
Bitcoins ?
90% of Bitcoin buyers are speculators !!!
A speculator is a person who trades derivatives, commodities, bonds, equities
or currencies with a higher than average risk in return for a higher-than-
average profit potential.
Speculators take large risks, especially with respect to anticipating future price
movements, in the hope of making quick, large gains.
Why Would You Want Some
Bitcoin ?
• It’s a novelty and would be fun to try.
• Show your friends that you are a true ground breaker.
• You like to gamble.
• You don’t trust Credit Cards and want to buy stuff online.
• You want to buy something on the internet that is “unconventional.”
• You want to sell something that is “unconventional”.
Problems with Bitcoin currency
• According to RBI, virtual currencies being in digital form are stored in
digital/electronic media that are called electronic wallets (e-wallets). Therefore,
they are prone to losses arising out of hacking, loss of password, compromise of
access credentials, malware attack etc.
• Since they are not created by or traded through any authorized central registry
or agency, the loss of an e-wallet could result in the permanent loss of the virtual
currencies held in them.
• Payments made through virtual currencies, such as bitcoins, takes place on a
peer-to-peer basis without an authorized central agency regulating it.
• The absence of information of counterparties in such peer-to-peer
anonymous/pseudonymous systems could subject the users to unintentional
breaches of anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism.
Bitcoin Outlawed in Some Countries
• Russia was first to outlaw Bitcoin transactions
• They have enough corruption without Bitcoin
• China is restricting it use
• Too much speculation
• Korea outlaws it’s use – claims it’s not a legitimate currency
• Thailand shutdown the Bitcoin exchange in their country
Bitcoin in a Perfect World
• There are many promises to be fulfilled by a universal digital currency.
• Lowers the cost of processing.
 Credit cards charge ~5% to the supplier.
 Bitcoin transactions would cost almost nothing.
• Reduces Fraud
 Credit card fraud costs billions of dollars each year
 Don’t need to carry plastic in your wallet
 Smartphone Apps can work with Bitcoin
Will Bitcoin Succeed ?
• Digital currency makes a lot of sense.
 It could eliminate a lot of middle man costs (credit cards, wire fees, etc.)
 It could be extremely easy to use
 It could eliminate billions of dollars in credit card fraud and identity theft.
• Bitcoin may utterly fail but some form of digital currency will probably emerge.
 It must be safe
 It must be traceable by government entities
 It must be easy to use.
 People must have trust in it’s value
Any Questions ?
Thank You For Your
Attention !!!

Therefore, they are prone to losses arising out of hacking, loss of password, compromise of access credentials, malware attack etc. • Since they are not created by or traded through any authorized central registry or agency, the loss of an e-wallet could result in the permanent loss of the virtual currencies held in them. • Payments made through virtual currencies, such as bitcoins, takes place on a peer-to-peer basis without an authorized central agency regulating it. • The absence of information of counterparties in such peer-to-peer anonymous/pseudonymous systems could subject the users to unintentional breaches of anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism.
