The world's first enduring cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC) was created in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto, a pseudonymous individual or group. It succeeded where decades of digital cash experiments failed.
Instead of being dictated by dependable third parties, Bitcoin's monetary policy is enforced by a one-of-a-kind combination of software, cryptography, and financial incentives.The blockchain, a technological phenomenon in and of itself, powers the Bitcoin network. The blockchain is a cryptographically secure, verifiable database.
A global network of stakeholders makes up the Bitcoin ecosystem. These stakeholders include miners, who are in charge of securing the network and issuing Bitcoin currency, traders, who speculate on this fundamentally market-driven asset, and developers working to introduce people to the cryptocurrency paradigm.
