Bitcoin is the world’s leading virtual currency, an innovative payment network and a new kind of money.
It was created in 2009 resulting in a so-called cryptocurrency that has its own value and is not tied to any physical currency.
Coins are transferred directly between users and are kept in a digital wallet that can be accessed on a computer or mobile device.
