What is Bitcoin (BTC)?

Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency and the first real-world application of blockchain technology. Its decentralised payment system allows people to send money to each other online without going through a third party. Instead of relying on a bank to authorise payments, Bitcoin uses cryptography to process secure transactions on the blockchain. The protocol operates using open-source software and runs across a peer-to-peer network of computers.

A revolutionary innovation in economics

Bitcoin was born in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. It presented a new form of money. Bitcoin’s creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, sought to address flaws in the current financial system and offered Bitcoin as a solution. By removing the middleman, Bitcoin was able to solve one key issue: trust. To do this, Bitcoin introduced the first consensus mechanism called proof-of-work (PoW).

Bitcoin transforms money. Just as email changed how we send letters, Bitcoin has changed how we send transactions online. Countries around the world are adopting Bitcoin as legal tender and it has even become an official currency in El Salvador and the Central African Republic. Bitcoin’s blockchain has provided the technology for many other cryptocurrencies to exist which has evolved into a multi-trillion-dollar industry.

Bitcoin is #1

Bitcoin’s market cap accounts for roughly half of the entire crypto market. It is disinflationary by design with a fixed maximum supply of 21 million Bitcoin. More than ninety percent of all Bitcoins have already been mined, with the remainder likely to be minted by 2140, after which no more will ever be created.
