Description

Bitcoin is the first digital currency that pioneered the use of blockchain technology as a decentralized ledger for transactions. Bitcoin introduced to the world a digital currency that is at the same time decentralized and trusted.

  • Decentralization means that the currency does not have a central authority which issues it or regulates its usage in any way.
  • Trust means that the users of the currency are certain that transactions written on the ledger are irreversible; and that an amount of currency on a one’s wallet cannot be changed unless he or she will be willing to make a transfer or give a third party access to the wallet.

Making this concept a reality, creators of Bitcoin revolutionized the market of digital currencies or, should we say, facilitated the inception of cryptocurrency market.

Bitcoin saw the world in 2009. For a first two years, it was embraced only by scientists, hackers, and enthusiasts. Slowly it started to gain recognition among the general public, then became hyped and promoted by celebrities and media. Inspired by Bitcoin, other projects based on blockchain technology began to appear. Some of them, like Ethereum or Ripple, were unique and brought to the market new breeds of distributed ledger applications. Some were digital currencies, but with innovative features for different use cases. Also, of course, plenty of digital currencies aimed to emulate the success of Bitcoin.
