Bitter to Better : How to Make Bitcoin a Better Currency By Simon Barber , Xavier Boyen , Elaine Shi , and Ersin Uzun . In Financial Cryptography (FC 2012) , volume ???? of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, pages ???-???. Springer, 2012. Abstract Bitcoin is a distributed digital currency which has attracted a substantial number of users. We perform an in-depth investigation to understand what made Bitcoin so successful, while decades of research on cryptographic e-cash has not lead to a large-scale deployment.
