Bitcoin is a Cryptocurrency that was released back in 2009 by pseudonymous developer Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks, managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. The network is maintained by the miners that in return get rewarded with the currency. Bitcoin is open-source and its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any of the older previous payment system like cash, cheque or credit cards.
