Bitcoin Overview

Bitcoin is a hugely interesting technology.  The social aspects and impacts aside, and purely from a technology perspective, Bitcoin appears to be a neat, elegant solution to the major challenges of electronic currency – specifically trust, integrity and control.

To help me to understand the fundamentals of Bitcoin, having read various documents from around the Internet, I created a 13 slide presentation that gives an overview of the key features.

You can see the presentation on here:
