So What's Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a digital currency that can be used to store or transfer value. It was created in 2009 by someone (or a group of people) using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto and it was the first decentralized digital currency.
Bitcoin can be used as a store of value, or to purchase things from anyone anywhere in the world. The system that Bitcoin is built ontop of operates without a central bank or single administrator. The system is peer-to-peer, and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary. These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.
Bitcoin has grown in popularity since its inception, and many businesses and individuals use it to pay for goods and services. The bitcoin network has grown so much that it now has more than 100 million users around the world!
