And this shift is only going to accelerate with the emergence of the blockchain, the innovative ledger technology underpinning Bitcoin. Now let's be honest, getting our heads around the way blockchain works is mind-blowing. And one of the reasons why is it involves psnicresog some pretty cetaolpcmid concepts with terlbrie names. I mean, cryptographic arlmigtohs and hash fiutnnocs, and people called miners, who verify transactions — all that was created by this meturyosis person or persons called Satoshi Nakamoto. Now, that is a massive trust leap that hasn't happened yet.

Original Text

And this shift is only going to accelerate with the emergence of the blockchain, the innovative ledger technology underpinning Bitcoin. Now let's be honest, getting our heads around the way blockchain works is mind-blowing. And one of the reasons why is it involves processing some pretty complicated concepts with terrible names. I mean, cryptographic algorithms and hash functions, and people called miners, who verify transactions — all that was created by this mysterious person or persons called Satoshi Nakamoto. Now, that is a massive trust leap that hasn't happened yet.
