Blockchain: Why Distributed Search Engines Can End Google Supremacy
January 10th, 2009, a guy named Satoshi Nakamoto (it was only a pseudonym) sent an email to Hal Finney, a man from Santa Barbara:
“Normally I would keep the symbols in, but they increased the size of the EXE from 6.5MB to 50MB so I just couldn’t justify not stripping them. I guess I made the wrong decision, at least for this early version. I’m kind of surprised there was a crash, I’ve tested heavily and haven’t had an outright exception for a while. Come to think of it, there isn’t even an exception print at the end of debug.log. I’ve been testing on XP SP2, maybe SP3 is something.
I’ve attached bitcoin.exe with symbols. (gcc symbols for gdb, if you’re using MSVC I can send you an MSVC build with symbols)
Thanks for your help!”
The subject of the email was Crash in bitcoin 0.1.0. That man, Satoshi Nakamoto was explaining to Hal Finney how to use a Bitcoin.
In fact, Nakamoto was the founding father of what would become the most revolutionary invention of the internet, a digital currency, which today has the potential to revolutionize the financial industry.
Many still fail to recognize that. Why? The story of Bitcoin and how it was born and developed looks more like a movie than a real story. In fact, founded by a person (or group of people) under the name of Satoshi Nakamoto, eventually started to grow thanks to an online drug market called Silk Road, in the meander of the so-called Dark Web.
Finally, Satoshi Nakamoto disappeared with a final statement, on April 23rd, 2011, that left anyone from the Bitcoin community bewildered:
“I’ve moved on to other things. It’s in good hands with Gavin and everyone.” source: bitcoin.stackexchange.com
Satoshi Nakamoto was referring to another early adopter of the digital currency. From that moment on none heard from him.
However today I’m not telling you the Bitcoin story which you can read anywhere on the web. I will talk about an even more revolutionary technology, that although might not sound as intriguing as the story of Bitcoin, it has a higher disruptive potential. In the last two decades, the web has been dominated by Google. That web domination might be close to an end. Indeed, Blockchain has the potential to make the giant from Mountain View become a dwarf.[Click to Continue Reading]
