  • Condos et al. 2016 (†819 p.11): Whether the content of that transaction is the hash of a transfer of Bitcoin from one wallet to another, a contract agreed to by two parties, or a document registered for purposes of future verification, each of these instances represents the creation of an electronic record that is encrypted, distributed, verified, and eventually added to an ever-growing ledger of other transactions. (†2329)
  • Walport 2016 (†802 p.47): For individual users, the system can also achieve a high degree of security — in order to move the bitcoins held in a wallet, an attacker must know the private key associated with a given public key (which is where the bitcoins are held). (†2330)
