    Chairman Of The Bitcoin Foundation Talks The Future Of Cryptocash

    After Bitcoin’s fine showing last night at the Crunchies, we took a moment to talk to Peter Vessenes, Chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation. Vessenes accepted the award and assured me multiple times that he was not, in fact, secretive BTC creator Satoshi Nakamoto in disguise.

    My biggest question to him is when my mom would start using Bitcoin and why she would be interested.

    “It’s a great way to buy stuff on the Internet,” said Vessenes, who went on to describe how he paid a Romanian VPN almost instantly using bitcoin.

    Cryptocurrencies are big right now and multiple VCs at the Crunchies expected Bitcoin to be the next big thing. Whether or not Vessenes is really Satoshi is still in doubt, but we’re pretty sure the service is here to stay.
