I would like to create this page, describing bitcoin in an easy manner. ---

"These bitcoins are valuable because they require the spending of real resources (CPU time and electricity) to produce,"

this seems to me the cost-theory of value, which is a fallacy. Digging holes in the ground requires spending of resources too.


Good page, but I was expecting a more concise introduction. Perhaps give it a more punchy, concise start?

I've started filling-in a few sections of the Italian version If you don't mind, I am using this page as the basis. So, I'm translating it and tightening it up at the same time. Would it be OK? I've also added a summary, using the bitcoin entry in wikipedia.

Banking and Money, in general

I am not sure about all the users of this site who are interested in and trying to understand BitCoin (as I am), but personally, I found myself, even quite recently, without an understanding about how banking and money works at all. The Khan Academy video series on banking and money was very helpful, I thought perhaps you might want to include a link in the Introduction and Basic Concepts. I think the more regular people can understand these basic things, the more they will be interested and engaged.

Thanks and great work so far it seems
