It is 10 years since Satoshi Nakamoto released the Bitcoin whitepaper, and in that time the protocol has survived so much: state-level bans, the Mt. Gox collapse, the closing of the Silk Road and civil war to name a few. Bitcoin has survived and is a +$100bn network, changing the rules and nature of money.
