What Is Bitcoin?

  • Bitcoin (BTC) is a peer-to-peer (P2P) digital currency system conceived in 2008 by an anonymous person or group with the moniker Satoshi Nakamoto.
  • Using the Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism, the network rewards miners for maintaining the system.
  • Bitcoin is the first fully autonomous and self-sustaining payment network, where no single party can intervene in or terminate it.
  • Since the inception of Bitcoin, hundreds of thousands of altcoins have been created, each offering its own use cases and benefits.
  • Bitcoin is also referred to as ‘digital gold’ by some, as only a finite supply of Bitcoin exists and can be mined.
Learn more about the world’s biggest cryptocurrency in this beginner’s guide to Bitcoin.

Who Created Bitcoin?

Bitcoin was created by an individual or group of individuals using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. The true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto remains unknown; there has been much speculation and investigation over the years, but no conclusive evidence has surfaced regarding Nakamoto’s true identity.

The Bitcoin White Paper

Nakamoto published the Bitcoin white paper, titled ‘Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System’, in 2008, and released the first version of the Bitcoin software in 2009. Work continued on the project, communicating with the early Bitcoin community, before Nakamoto eventually disappeared from public view in 2010.

How Does Bitcoin Work?

Bitcoin uses blockchain technology, and one of blockchain’s main features is the way it records data, which is:
  • Immutable
  • Transparent
  • Decentralised
Immutable means that no entity can modify the transaction records. Transparent implies that anyone can see and verify the transactions on a blockchain via the internet. Decentralised means it is very difficult for a single entity to govern the whole network (although 51% attacks, where a group obtains more than half of mining power, are theoretically possible).

Bitcoin was the first application to utilise blockchain technology (even though the term ‘blockchain’ was introduced after Bitcoin). There are two main stakeholders in the Bitcoin system: regular users, who can access the system to make transactions, and miners, who work behind the scenes to power and maintain the network.
Infographic explaining Bitcoin's transaction process from sender to validation to receivers
Miners run computers, called ‘nodes’, with a lot of processing power in order to store data, handle and broadcast transactions, and solve a complex mathematical puzzle in order to mine new ‘blocks’ on the blockchain, which contain recent transactions. Every time someone sends a transaction to the Bitcoin network, miners pick up the transaction and complete the steps above behind the scenes.

Miners do not volunteer to maintain this decentralised network for free, however. They are incentivised to do so by receiving mining rewards and transaction fees upon completing the equation and validating transactions. Their reward for creating new blocks comes in the form of newly minted Bitcoin, which is why the process is called mining.
To gain a deeper understanding of the technological aspects of Bitcoin, check out this introduction to how Bitcoin works.
“Every informed person needs to know about Bitcoin because it might be one of the world’s most important developments.”

What Is the Safest Way to Store Bitcoin?

Image illustrating cold wallets for storing cryptocurrency
Bitcoin is always recorded on the Bitcoin blockchain, but ownership of bitcoins is determined via a private key, which is usually stored in a Bitcoin wallet. Wallets are software programmes or hardware devices that allow users to securely store, send, and receive bitcoins.

There are several types of wallets available, each with its own level of security and convenience. These include hot wallets, which are apps connected to the internet, and cold wallets, which are usually hardware devices that securely store BTC offline.

To send Bitcoin, you need a Bitcoin wallet and the recipient's Bitcoin address. Here are the steps to send Bitcoin:
  • Log into your Bitcoin wallet.

  • In your wallet, navigate to the ‘Send’ option.

  • Enter the recipient's Bitcoin address. It is a long string of alphanumeric characters, typically starting with a '1' or '3'.

  • Enter the amount of Bitcoin you want to send. Be mindful of transaction fees, which vary depending on network congestion and wallet settings.

  • Once the details are correct, click the 'Send' button to initiate the transaction.

  • Bitcoin transactions require confirmation from the network. Depending on network congestion, this process may take a few minutes to several hours.

  • Once the transaction is confirmed, the recipient will receive the Bitcoin in their wallet.

Bitcoin Halving

Bitcoin is programmed to a total maximum supply of 21 million BTC, and about every four years, the amount of Bitcoin rewards for mining is halved. This periodic decrease in the rate of bitcoins issued into circulation is called ‘Bitcoin halving’ and can push BTC price up.

In 2012, the reward was 25 bitcoins per block, and in 2016, it decreased to 12.5 bitcoins per block. As of early 2023, miners are rewarded 6.25 bitcoins per block mined.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency that operates on distributed ledger technology called a blockchain and uses cryptography for security. It is decentralized and operates independently of a central bank.
Unlike traditional currencies, cryptocurrencies are not backed by a physical commodity or government, and their value is determined by market demand and supply. Cryptocurrencies can be used to buy goods and services, transfer funds, and trade in markets. Popular cryptocurrencies include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, and Cronos.
Many cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, are created through a process called mining, which involves solving complex mathematical equations to validate and record transactions on a blockchain. This mechanism is also called Proof of Work (PoW). Another consensus mechanism that has increased in popularity — as it is more energy efficient — is Proof of Stake (PoS). Instead of mining, PoS relies on network participants validating transactions. Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency, uses this consensus mechanism.
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that operates on a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. It was created in 2009 by an unknown person or group using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin is the first and most well-known cryptocurrency, and it has gained significant popularity and value since its creation.
Unlike traditional fiat currency, which is controlled by central banks and governments, Bitcoin operates independently of any central authority. Transactions are verified and recorded on the blockchain, which is a distributed ledger that maintains a permanent and transparent record of all transactions.
Bitcoin can be bought, sold, and exchanged on various cryptocurrency exchanges, and it can be used to purchase goods and services from merchants that accept Bitcoin as a form of payment. The supply of bitcoins is limited to 21 million units, and new bitcoins are created through mining, which involves using specialized computer hardware to solve complex mathematical equations.
Bitcoin is known for its high volatility, and its value can fluctuate rapidly in response to market conditions, news events, and other factors. Many traders, including institutional investors, see Bitcoin as a store of value and a way to participate in the growing cryptocurrency ecosystem.
There are several ways to buy cryptocurrencies, including:
  1. Brokerage services: Crypto brokers allow users to simply buy and sell cryptocurrencies. A popular example is the Crypto.com App, trusted by over 80 million users. It is available at the Apple Store and on Google Play.
  2. Cryptocurrency exchanges: These are online platforms where users can buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrencies using fiat currency or other cryptocurrencies. They offer more complex functions compared to a crypto brokerage, adding trading instruments like crypto derivatives. The Crypto.com Exchange is an example of a popular crypto exchange.
  3. Peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplaces: These are platforms where buyers and sellers can directly trade cryptocurrencies without the involvement of a third-party exchange. This is also known as DeFi, short for decentralized finance. Multiple P2P crypto marketplaces can be accessed all in one app via the Crypto.com DeFi Wallet.
It is important to perform proper research and choose a reputable platform to buy cryptocurrencies. For instance, Crypto.com holds the highest security rating in the industry. In addition, it is advisable to store cryptocurrencies securely in a wallet like the Crypto.com App or Crypto.com DeFi Wallet.
