Bitcoin talk about Blockchain and not Bitcoin

Bitcoin
as a blockchain implementation

 

It started in 2008, the
year we all remember for the collapse of the global financial system, whose
consequences we still feel today. Satoshi Nakamoto, a character around which
today a cloud of mystery hovers (Satoshi Nakamoto would in fact be a pseudonym
behind which we still do not know who actually exists, in May 2016 Craig
Wright, an Australian entrepreneur and computer scientist, decided to reveal
the his double identity in front of the BBC cameras, claiming to be him the man
who invented the bitcoin but no one was able to confirm it), publishes the
Bitcoin protocol through a white paper in which a technological architecture is
described to support the circulation of bitcoins, cryptocurrency (digital
currency whose implementation is based on the principles of cryptography to
validate transactions and the generation of money itself) that flows freely
among users without costs on operations and without the control of a central
body.

The architecture that
‘supports’ the trust distributed is the Blockchain. The great revolution, from
a theoretical point of view, lies precisely in the absence of ‘intermediaries’,
like a bank; the accounting book, the so-called bank ledger, ie the ledger on
which all the accounting of a bank is registered, becomes in reality a
‘distributed ledger’ accessible by any user who makes a transaction and then
enters the ‘chain of distribution ‘, which is entrusted with the control of the
entire system or a part of it (all the information in the’ ledger ‘is
distributed and shared by all the subjects of the network, ie by those who
participate in the Blockchain).

Although Nakamoto
started the Bitcoin architecture (that is, the infrastructure that underlies
the bitcoin-encoded currency circulation), in a short time the concept of
Blockchain took over (identifying with it the name of the infrastructure and
preferring to talk about Blockchain and not Bitcoin to avoid being culturally
associated only with the bitcoin currency) and more or less since 2013 is used
to describe the technological platform that underlies the mechanisms of ‘trust’
that could enable new forms of exchange (currency , of goods, information,
contracts, etc.) where trust is no longer placed in a central entity but
distributed among all the participants of the ‘exchange’.
