Coin: Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is a type of digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank. It was created in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto (a mysterious person, or group of persons, whose identity has yet to be revealed).

In recent years Bitcoin has been used more widely as a store of value, rather than a transaction currency, and because of that has been dubbed the "Digital Gold."
