Bitcoin is a form of digital currency or virtual currency created and held electronically. No one controls it, that is, not regulated by any central bank or government.
They aren’t printed, like dollars or euros ‘ they’re produced by people, and increasingly businesses, running computers all around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems.
It is also called a “cryptocurrency” since it is decentralized and uses cryptography to prevent double-spending, a significant challenge inherent to digital currencies.
Bitcoin is a distributed peer-to-peer digital currency that functions without the inter-mediation of any central authority.
• It can also be traded on an open market and its exchange rate fluctuates much like a stock market i.e. based on the demand.
