Bitcoin is a worldwide cryptocurrency and digital payment system called the first decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central repository or single administrator. Bitcoin was invented by an unknown person or group of people under the name Satoshi Nakamoto and released as open-source software in 2009. The system is peer-to-peer, and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary such as a bank. These Bitcoin transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.

Bitcoin can also be held as an investment, and experts agree that uncovering Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity could have an immense impact on bitcoin’s economics and internal politics.
