Bitcoin is the first ever cryptocurrency and was created in 2009.
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment system. When transactions are sent on the Bitcoin network, they are sent directly between users, no third party like a bank or remittance company is required. This is important as it means that Bitcoin is permissionless. You do not require permission from a third party like a bank to make a payment and that payment cannot be stopped or interfered with by a third party.
Unlike traditional payment systems, Bitcoin allows value to be transferred to anyone else on the network at any time, 365 days a year, 24/7. There are no limits on the amounts of value that can be sent.
Each transaction that takes place on the Bitcoin network is recorded on a publicly distributed ledger, typically referred to as a blockchain. Each block contains the record of a number of transactions that took place over a certain time period. Blocks on average take about 10 minutes to process.
Bitcoin is powered and secured by a distributed network of miners. Through a Proof-Of-Work consensus model these validators use computational power energy to mine bitcoin blocks. For every block mined there is a bitcoin reward and also miner fees paid out to the miner able to create the block. This is the incentive for miners to continue to operate on the network. Bitcoin uses SHA256 algorithm which is a highly secure cryptographic hash function. SHA stands for ‘secure hashing algorithm’ and the 256 refers to every output which will be 256 bits.
Bitcoin has created a global community that uses the network for self-sovereign security and value preservation. It is used by investors as well as speculators. It has also helped to spawn thousands of other cryptocurrencies.
Its creator is unknown and goes by the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. The first ever bitcoin transaction was sent from Satoshi Nakamoto to Hal Finney on 12 Jan 2009.
