Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency and a pioneer in the world of cryptocurrencies. It operates on a peer-to-peer network, utilizing blockchain technology to enable secure and transparent transactions. Bitcoin transactions are verified by network participants known as miners, who use computational power to solve complex mathematical problems. As a reward for their efforts, miners receive newly minted bitcoins. Bitcoin's decentralized nature eliminates the need for intermediaries like banks, enabling direct peer-to-peer transfers. With limited supply and built-in scarcity, Bitcoin is often seen as a store of value and a hedge against traditional fiat currencies. Its open-source nature has led to the development of numerous innovative blockchain applications and inspired the growth of a diverse cryptocurrency ecosystem.
