Read_756 – Bitcoin, The Trust Anchor in a Sea of Blockchains [Jameson Lopp]

"While bitcoin is still mainly seen as digital currency, it’s essentially a timestamped log with special properties. As such, it can be utilised for far more things than payments and store of value. I presented some of the alternative uses several years ago and the list continues to grow.

Brian Deery, chief scientist at Factom, wrote an excellent history of time-stamping, in which he argues that a secure timestamped record wasn’t feasible before the existence of secure digital value."
