Casa Blog - Bitcoin Security Made Easy

In the beginning, there was cryptography. Technology like encryption, PGP, and private keys have bypassed mainstream consciousness for much of our digital existence. The average person has had little to no recognition of the impact that cryptographic keys have in securing our lives on the Internet.

Enter, Bitcoin. Bitcoin private keys create a direct connection between an individual and true ownership of their money. At Casa, we believe Bitcoin is only the beginning of how private keys, or what we call “personal keys,” will change our daily lives. Control of these keys by individuals - not institutions, governments, or third parties - promises a shockwave of change in the coming years. Personal keys will transform money, free speech, digital surveillance, and even the nature of government itself.

Every year, Bitcoiners celebrate private keys on Proof of Keys day, where we withdraw any funds held with exchanges and custodians to wallets where we hold the keys. This year, Casa is amplifying Proof of Keys further with Keyfest.
