Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

Very disappointing to discover that WeUseCoins (creators of the world’s most popular “What Is Bitcoin?” video) are now trashing Bitcoin Cash throughout their website.

New "What Is Bitcoin?" video just posted from weusecoins.com

New submitted by Plesk8 to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

Note that weusecoins is telling everyone outside the US bitcoin is anonymous. Bad introduction video translated.

I remember when I first got into bitcoin I watched their v1 video, and it definitely says at some point that bitcoins transactions are permanently and anonymously stored in the bitcoin network. Depending on which country you visit the website from, you get either the old english version which is incorrect. Or a translated version of the incorrect version. This is basically what kept me to believe that bitcoin was actually anonymous for at least a year back in 2012.

"WeUseCoins.com" hace propaganda contra de Bitcoin Cash y promueve engañosamente el nombre "bcash" para referirse a BCH

Sometime in the past year Butterfly Labs purchased "WeUseCoins.com", the semi-official Bitcoin new users guide

I just noticed that sometime in the past year Butterfly Labs purchased WeUseCoins.com
WeUseCoins is one of the oldest Bitcoin websites (about a month before Buttcoin started, early 2011) and is known as the official "beginners guide" for new bitcoin users. It's on the Bitcoin wiki, the subreddit, and posted any time someone wants to know about Bitcoin. They also made the very popular "What is bitcoin?" video that has over 600k views.
The site now says "BF Labs" on the bottom, but purchasing the site was mainly to inject product links to BFL products.
Take the link on this page to "mining contracts".
Here's the page as it was cached in October 2013: https://web.archive.org/web/20131010210100/http://www.weusecoins.com/en/mining-guide
Link goes to the official Bitcoin wiki
Now look where it goes to: https://www.weusecoins.com/en/mining-guide
Butterfly Labs. Their links are peppered everywhere else on the site to. Any link that went to the Bitcoin wiki that mentions Mining Hardware or Mining Contracts now goes to the BFL website.
WeUseCoins is a PR6 website in Google which is very authoratative. Has over 450k backlinks as well.
A link from WeUseCoins is very valuable and just another one of many sites that BFL purchased to control their image online.

Ich kenne weusecoins.com, aber gibt es auch ein deutsches Äquivalent davon? Ich möchte gerne ein paar lokale Gaststätten über Bitcoin informieren und eine art Prospekt wäre dazu perfekt. Habt ihr sowas?

Zu den Prospekten würde ich auch sehr gerne eine Notiz beifügen der Form "Sobald ihr bitcoin akzeptiert werde ich hier 20 mBTC (ca. 25€) ausgeben." Wenn mehrere Zettel dieser Art auftauchen gibt das den Leuten mehr Motivation Bitcoin zu akzeptieren.

Comparing wallets

Are there any recent resources or posts comparing wallet options for beginners? I am looking for a list with a point of view, so I can pick one or two wallets to get started with Bitcoin. I want to know about things like platform-support, private key control, security (both trust and authentication), fee control, etc. I also want to know why people like or don't like certain wallets so I can better narrow things down.
I have found a few useful websites to get the ball rolling, but I would still appreciate a recent list as some either don't list as many wallets as I would like, or don't have enough data about them.
EDIT: (for my own reference)
I found an excellent analysis and spreadsheet comparison made by Veriphi that helped me make my final decision.
In the end, I chose to go with Blockstream Green (GreenAddress) for it's built-in 2FA and overall usability. I might also give Electrum a try since it also has a 2FA option through TrustedCoin and more features are supported. I also considered Bitcoin Wallet and Mycelium.

I'm in negative, but I still spent money to set up my first raspberry pi full node

My first raspberry pi 3 BTC full node: https://imgur.com/6yMWyxj
I'm not computer savvy, so this took a while for me to set up. I followed this guide: https://www.weusecoins.com/full-bitcoin-node-on-a-raspberry-pi-3-with-or-without-a-pidrive/#adding
Instructions are pretty straight forward but some of the command lines didn't really work for me so I had to research quite a bit to get it working.
I haven't made any profit from btc investment yet, and I know a lot of people are in negative, especially if you got in last December. However, I really believe in this technology and I just wanted to be a part of this grand experiment.
Total cost for setting up a full node was about $70 USD, so it isn't too much. I have a pretty decent internet connection, and after 7 hours, I have downloaded about 30gb worth of blocks.
It was pretty fun setting this up, and I encourage everyone to participate! I hope I am contributing to keeping Bitcoin decentralised.
Any questions, don't hesitate to reply. Happy to provide any help.
Why run a full node? "The permissionless distributed ledger used in Bitcoin is a chain of communication, which require nodes to validate actions within its protocol. They are essential to the ecosystem just as much as miners who are finding blocks and processing the data. "
