<nettime> a political, commons-based evaluation of Bitcoin


* In Conclusion

Despite all the drawbacks mentioned, Bitcoin remains a landmark and
pivotal development, showing that globally scaleable currencies are
technically feasible. It sets the stage for potential commons-based
p2p-driven currency systems and the Bitcoin ledger can become a tool for
self-organizing communities.
