Bitcoin is the most popular electronic currency (cryptocurrency) in the world. Bitcoin works as a decentralized digital currency that does not rely on any centralized bank or financial institution for the admiration of transactions.
Bitcoin can be easily sent from one user to another and all transactions are verified and permanently recorded on the peer-to-peer distributed global network known as the Bitcoin Blockchain.
Bitcoin was invented by an unknown individual or by a group of individuals using the name Satoshi Nakamoto. It was released as open-source software in 2009. Over the years, many claims about the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto were made – none of those claims turned out to be true.
