What's the most complicated thing about Bitcoin?
« on: December 03, 2019, 11:13:52 PM »
When someone starts using Bitcoin, the first thing he/she comes up with is a nice user interface (depending on the wallet used) that allows him/her to send/receive Bitcoin easily. With a little technical knowledge, the user won't need to worry about other Bitcoin features as long as he/she is able to send/receive coins in a P2P manner.

Still, there are other things that would be of benefit to the user if he/she knew about them. Batching transactions allows one to save off fees, while sending Bitcoin to a new address every time increases privacy. Most wallets don't have a straight-forward interface for the user to do this easily (as far as I know), which involves some technical knowledge to get the most out of Bitcoin.

Among the many features provided by the Bitcoin blockchain, I'm starting to wonder which one is the most complicated? In my case, I believe that it's complicated to perform offline transactions using Bitcoin core as you'd need to know certain commands (like sendrawtransaction) in order to perform said task. There are other commands that are used for creating a multi-sig address and performing batch transactions that are not easy to learn for the average user.

What's your opinion?
