Bitcoin (BTC) is the first decentralized digital currency, or cryptocurrency. The Bitcoin network is peer-to-peer and transactions take place directly between users, without an intermediary. Transactions are verified by a network of nodes and included in a public ledger, called a blockchain, through a process called mining. Bitcoin was invented by an unknown person or group of people under the name Satoshi Nakamoto and released as open-source software in 2009.
