Do you know what Bitcoin is? And how to get these digital coins? Let’s review it together in this article, because bitcoin is currently busy, let’s just take a look below.
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a type of crypto currency (cryptocurrency) which is used to transact virtually on the internet, without going through third parties or intermediaries such as banks. Simply put, Bitcoin is a digital version of cash whose transactions take place automatically peer-to-peer (P2P), i.e. from sender to receiver. However, every Bitcoin transaction is still recorded in a publicly distributed ledger called blockchain. Blockchain is a recording system or database widely distributed on the internet that is used to record transactions cryptocurrency.
Therefore, although it has a function as a means of payment, Bitcoin does not have a physical form like fiat currency. Bitcoin also uses cryptography to provide a variety of basic security functions. That way, this digital currency can only be used by the owner and cannot be used for more than one transaction. Not only that, Bitcoin is also not regulated and influenced by government regulations or any financial institution.
Bitcoin also doesn’t depend on one main issuer like other currencies in essence, but uses a database that is distributed and spread across the world nodes from P2P networks to transaction journals. Digesting its history, Bitcoin was created by Satoshi Nakamoto which was a pseudonym and was released to the public online open source back in 2009. The first Bitcoin transaction was made by Satoshi to a programmer named Hal Finney, which amounted to 10 Bitcoins. Until 2010, Satoshi stopped developing Bitcoin and handed it over to Gavin Andersen who is currently a lead developer at the Bitcoin Foundation.
