Bitcoin is Wisdom from an Ancient Civilization

This is an opinion editorial by Leon Wankum, one of the first financial economics students to write a thesis on Bitcoin in 2015.

As I walk through the ruins of Machu Picchu, an Inca fortress built high in the Peruvian Andes and dates back to the 1450s, I see the remains of magnificent buildings and structures built by a long gone civilization. To this day we cannot explain how the Inca built it or what exactly it was used for. Historians know that the Inca used Machu Picchu as a sacred place to house about 700 high priests. A place full of magical mysteries, Machu Picchu is known for its buildings with intricate ashlar walls and astronomical alignments that join massive stones without mortar.
