Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system that has no central authority and does not rely on banks or other financial institution to operate. Created by the anonymous Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin utilises blockchain technology as a public transaction ledger, allowing the network to verify transactions that are sent directly from one party to another. Anyone can join the Bitcoin network as no one owns or controls it.
Bitcoin was the first functioning cryptocurrency and lay the groundwork for the thousands of subsequent projects that have appeared since. Despite the added competition, bitcoin remains the most popular cryptocurrency globally accounting for over half of the overall crypto market capitalization.
