Too Long; Didn't Read

Bitcoin is one of the 21st century's most remarkable innovations. The ability to send and receive value over the Internet without relying on a centralized intermediary signifies a paradigm shift in the evolution of money. Bitcoin's disruptive influence has extended far beyond money and could reach nearly every aspect of the global economy as there are several other social constructs that have the potential to be transformed by open blockchains. Smart contracts enable the development of computer programs that securely and autonomously handle digital assets. The transactions are completed by “unstoppable code,” rather than human action.
