Bitcoin is a digital form of money that runs on a distributed network of computers "nodes".

Bitcoin is the name of a peer-to-peer (P2P) digital currency, which is sometimes referred to as bitcoin Ƀ or simply BTC. Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency, which means it is a digital currency that is protected by cryptographic techniques. It was the first cryptocurrency that came into existence, and the first Bitcoin block - known as the genesis block or block 0- was mined on the 3rd of January 2009.
