What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is more than just digital money. It is the world's first fully decentralised digital currency and payment network. Bitcoin (BTC) is the most popular cryptocurrency, with a market cap that makes up almost half the entire market. With a fixed maximum supply of 21 million, Bitcoin is a scarce digital asset. After the remaining ten percent has been mined, there will be no more Bitcoin minted.

Money without middlemen

Bitcoin allows people to send money to each other without needing to go through a third party. It operates free of central control and without bias. Anyone can send and receive Bitcoin payments, from anywhere in the world, using an online wallet.

Sending overseas remittances and making micropayments with Bitcoin is far cheaper than traditional methods. It is widely accepted, and for some retailers, Bitcoin is even the preferred payment method. In many countries, there are even Bitcoin ATMs that allow travellers to withdraw cash into the local fiat currency, without paying expensive fees.

In cryptography, we trust

The protocol runs on open-source software that is distributed across a global peer-to-peer (P2P) network of computers. Bitcoin replaces financial intermediaries with cryptography. This is where the name cryptocurrency comes from. Bitcoin facilitates trustless transactions and uses a proof-of-work (PoW) mining algorithm to validate and confirm data. Transactions are processed in blocks and linked together in a chain, hence the name blockchain.

Bitcoin has revolutionised money. Its arrival is hard to overstate. Built upon decades of research in computer science, Bitcoin has had a profound impact on modern economics. Without Bitcoin’s blockchain, there would be no other cryptocurrencies, and without the blockchain, there would be no Bitcoin.
