If you've never read the bitcoin white paper before, you can find it below:
Bitcoin has clearly deviated from the original "vision" when the first block was mined on 3 Jan 2009, but the impact it has had and will have in the future is irrevocable. I can only imagine what the world of "e-cash" will look like on 3 Jan 2029 when Bitcoin turns 20.
If just 5% of world trade moves to Bitcoin, it would require bitcoin to be over $1 Million dollars per coin. Lets shoot for 10% of world trade and I'll be happy. :-)
