Interview 4

— What is Bitcoin?
— Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency.
— Very good. Do you want to elaborate a little bit?
— There’s no real coin there. Actually, it’s just a fantasy. It’s a made up currency.
— Who is in charge of Bitcoin?
— I have no idea. Right now, it’s traded on the market, so I would say the markets in charge of whatever is going to be.
— OK, very good. Where do Bitcoins come from?
— A company made them up. Somebody said, “Let’s make up a cryptocurrency and let’s call it Bitcoin.”
— That’s what it is. What is Blockchain technology?
— You got me on that one. I don’t know.
— How many Bitcoins are there in existence?
— I don’t think there’s a lot of them because the prices held by. I think two people hold 40 % of the currency. There aren’t really a lot of them out there. I’m sure they’ll make more as the price goes up so that they can unload what they have. I don’t know who makes them.
— And last question: Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
— Nakamoto? That’s a good question. Sounds like a Japanese person. Maybe it’s a person who made up the Bitcoin. I don’t know.

I hope you all enjoyed these interviews very much. Overall, I think people have some sort of understanding of what Bitcoin is. Obviously, when you get into some of the technical questions like what Blockchain technology is, many people didn’t know what that was. I think this is important to move forward with seeing how digital currency is going to grow in popularity and understanding with the general public.
