This post is not related to the Bitcoin as technology nor the future of its price but the data of Bitcoin. There are several wallets to keep your Bitcoins but the ones that offer the best security is the ones that don’t trust 3rd parties, including the original Bitcoin client. Since they don’t trust any 3rd party they need to download the entire blockchain, every block, every transaction ever made and verify it. That amount of data has reached 100GB so you need a hard drive which can fit that size and have room for future blocks also. The early blocks were empty with few or no transactions but new blocks are full or almost full so expect the size to grow faster from now on. In addition, more users are joining the Bitcoin train, more companies are accepting the crypto-currency and is expected to have even more transactions.
