What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin (BTC) is the first cryptocurrency to be created. Released in 2009 by the enigmatic Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin was created in part as a response to the 2008 financial crisis. Due to its limited maximum supply of 21 million BTC, its decentralized model, and its position as the cryptocurrency with the largest total market share, Bitcoin is widely regarded as “digital gold” — an electronic store of value.
