About Bitcoin

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency and is thus not regulated or controlled by a governmental body such as a bank. Bitcoin owners cannot easily be identified and are therefore offered a certain degree of anonymity.

Although the Bitcoin logo is a currency, it should not be confused with physical money. Bitcoin is the most well-known digital currency worldwide. Also called ”digital gold”.

When and why was Bitcoin developed?

Bitcoin was invented by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009. His main goal was to develop the electronic variant of cash. Satoshi Nakamoto wanted to make his digital money decentralized, so that a central government body like a bank or financial institution would no longer be needed. Satoshi Nakamoto developed the source code of Bitcoin and over time an ever larger Bitcoin community emerged and grew into what it is today.

What are the features of Bitcoin?

Bitcoin was the first currency to use blockchain technology on a large scale. It is the pioneer among the digital currencies of which all other digital currencies are followers. Bitcoin gives access to markets that were historically difficult to enter. Microfinance opportunities in developing countries are the main example. Bitcoin can offer improved protection against fraud and theft. As long as the right measures are taken, it is in principle more secure than conventional currencies. Bitcoin is associated with both large profits and large losses. It is a new value carrier that is talked about a lot and therefore has great volatility.
