Coin Summary

Invented by the anonymous Satoshi Nakamoto in January of 2009, Bitcoin became the first digital asset to utilize blockchain technology. This technology is the basis of decentralization. It allows for a network owned by the people rather than by one entity. BTC was intended to be used as a global payment system, storing all transactions on an online ledger that can be accessed by anyone. It allows for cheap and fast transfer of funds without the need of a bank. Bitcoin utilizes a Proof-of-Work consensus mechanism, as miners compete for Bitcoin by maintaining the network; this is what leads to the high energy costs of mining. As cryptocurrencies have thrived, Bitcoin has remained the most recognizable and heavily-invested-in name in the sphere. While recent dramatic price movements may have people thinking “Is Bitcoin dead?”, we can assure you that Bitcoin has survived many crashes before.
