"In the case of Bitcoin, whose will exactly are you trusting?"

You are trusting the MATH.

For instance, if I need to state that this Bitcoin belongs to me, every computer in the network has to agree, based on the MATH, not my reputation, what someone says, what the majority of the people say, what the government says, etc.

I'm not really good at explaining things, but this guy is!


Bryan- I hope my explanation was simple, to hell with the details, etc.
