Les bitcoins ont fait couler beaucoup d'encre ces derniers mois, avec l'éclatement de la bulle spéculative qui s'était formée autour de cette nouvelle monnaie. Ces soubresauts ne doivent pas occulter d'autres débats, plus techniques mais aux enjeux considérables.
Bitcoin is a new payment application available on the internet since January 2009. In a way, by virtue of its open source publication, it is similar to the World Wide Web, the hugely successful internet application of the internet that now enables so many others.

Can it be seen as a new monetary reform vehicle?
Bitcoin est une application de paiement en ligne disponible depuis janvier 2009. Créée par la communauté du libre, elle évoque le World Wide Web, l'application d'Internet dont le succès a ouvert la voie à tant d'autres. Le Web a révolutionné le partage et la production des savoirs; bitcoin transforme le consensus social autour de la création monétaire, ouvrant la voie à une nouvelle liberté économique.
