This is the best answer i found for you, and i quote:
"If you do not comprehend or understand an XOR cipher function, Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm and some basics of Classless Inter-Domain Routing then it may be best to sit down, shut-up, listen to some people who do understand, ask what questions you can formulate based on your limited understanding, do some study and then try to form an opinion based on facts instead of facile intelligence where one thinks they have a talent for monetary science, economics and finance but do not see the need to undertake the hard labor of learning how such arguments are constructed when applied to the Bitcoin Protocol. After all, do you want to be the guy that asks, “How big is yellow?” or worse ignorantly pronounce the statement, “Yellow is really big.”
Why would anyone continue respecting someone who loudly proclaims yellow is really big?
As more people come to understand that yellow is a color not a thing then they are better able to discern the logic and arguments. Then those who proclaim yellow is really big will not stay highly respected because their arguments are poor. Remember, ideas can only be overcome by other ideas."
