۲. Satoshi issue with national currencies

Satoshi believed that the obvious problem with Fiat currencies was their centrality. “Power brings corruption, and absolute power equals absolute corruption,” was a phrase Satoshi believed in.

When power is in the hands of a limited number of people (for example, banks), corruption occurs and then leads to big mistakes that must be borne by ordinary people.

His response to such a situation was decentralization or the absence of a single power. He wrote about this:

«Many people automatically reject these types of currencies because not all e-currency companies in the 1990s were successful. I hope it is settled that the nature of central control in these systems was the only reason for their failure. I think this is the first time we have tried a decentralized, distrustful system.»

Bitcoin, Classic Ethereum, and Bitcoin Unlimited were the first hard forks in the digital currency world. In other words, people opposed some of the original ideas first proposed by Bitcoin. Satoshi knew that if the formula changed constantly, it would challenge decentralization.

Satoshi had to do the job right from the start. he writes:

«The nature of bitcoin is such that with the release of version 0.1 (the first version), its original design will remain unchanged… I think it would never be a good idea to implement a second, adaptable version of bitcoin. Much of the plan depends on all nodes being synchronized with exactly the same results, which would make the second implementation a threat to the network.»

«Bitcoin is more than just a precious metal. Instead of changing supply to maintain value, the amount of supply is predetermined, and it is that value that changes. The more users there are, the higher the value of each coin. This situation provides the potential for a positive feedback cycle; As the number of users increases, the value of Bitcoin increases and the increase in value causes more users to be attracted to it to take advantage of this increase in value.»
