Bitcoin (BTC) is the world’s first decentralized, peer-to-peer form of electronic cash, developed by an unknown person or group known as Satoshi Nakamoto. First launched in 2009 after the fallout of the Global Financial Crisis, Bitcoin is a digital currency designed to work without the need for a system administrator or central bank, due to its unique distributed ledger technology known today as blockchain. Bitcoin has a fixed supply of 21 million bitcoins, and each bitcoin is divisible down to 8 decimal places. A unit of 0.00000001 BTC is also known as a Satoshi, in honor of Bitcoin’s inventor.
