http://www.hamilton.edu/news/the-death-of-the-dollar-bill-the-rise-of-bitcoin-and-other-online-currenciesWith the digitization of information, cyberspace is a developing network that’s changing how we live. In 2009, the first digital currency, Bitcoin, was invented. Bitcoin has been called a “decentralized virtual currency” by some economists, due to the fact that it is transferred from one user to another, called peer-to-peer or P2P, without the use of any central bank. Sitong Chen ’16, with Professor of Economics Christophre Georges, worked this summer on an Emerson project, “Analysis of the Internet-born Currency: The Birth of Bitcoin.”Thu, 21 Aug 2014 12:00:00 ESTGibbons Serves on MathFest Panel
