The Bitcoin revolution is underway but most people still don't understand what Bitcoin is and why it's so groundbreaking. Help show your support and spread the word about Bitcoin by snagging one of our sharp looking tee's.
We created this store because we wanted to show our support for Bitcoin but most of the Bitcoin t-shirts we saw online weren't shirts we wanted to wear ourselves. We decided to fix that problem by putting together some simple but classic designs on a high-quality t-shirt. We hope you like them. And of course, we accept Bitcoin ;)
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a new kind of global payment network. Like Visa or Paypal, it allows money to be transferred electronically however Bitcoin is different from these conventional payment networks in two important ways.
First, the Bitcoin network is fully decentralized. The PayPal network is owned and operated by PayPal Inc. People send money to each other via PayPal and PayPal keeps a ledger. But there is no Bitcoin Inc. Instead, thousands of computers around the world process Bitcoin transactions in a peer-to-peer fashion.
Second, Visa and PayPal payments are based on conventional currencies such as the US dollar. In contrast, the Bitcoin network has its own unit of value, which is called the bitcoin. The value of one bitcoin fluctuates against other currencies in the same way the euro’s value fluctuates against the dollar. In April 2014, one bitcoin is worth around $400, and all bitcoins in existence are worth around $5 billion.
