Bitcoin's "innovation in trust," radical self-reliance, and social scaling. Everyone is following the same consensus rules. It is an emergent model for trust in a decentralised network-centric, game theoretical, market-based security system.

We're at the infancy of this technology, so right now it's very difficult for individuals to secure their own bitcoin; this creates a tendency to concentrate funds and rely on third parties.

There are two kinds of centralised exchanges: those that have been hacked and those that will be hacked. The problem is a technical skills gap - we need to make bitcoin reflexive and easy secure without centralising it. We don't need perfect security, we need reasonable certainty.
