Description

The first line of the Bitcoin white paper, written by the anonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto, reads, “A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash, which would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution.” Bitcoin launched on Jan. 3, 2009, launching the cryptocurrency revolution. Bitcoin is a purely decentralized digital currency, confirming transactions on its own blockchain, which makes it unlike any other asset that came before it.
