More Info About Coin
Bitcoin is the world's first decentralized cryptocurrency. This currency is not tied to any physical assets or fiat currencies, and the price of a BTC is regulated solely by market demand and supply.
Bitcoin is also a worldwide payment system through which it is possible to conduct transactions with this currency. Its main difference from traditional payment systems lies in the fact that Bitcoin system has no Manager, nor processing center — all transactions take place exclusively online among clients on equal conditions.
Bitcoin blockchain was created in 2009 (its development started in 2007), by a programmer or a team of programmers with the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto. In 2009, Satoshi published the source code of the system and this event can be called the beginning of the cryptocurrency.
