Bitcoin is a decentralized system of the same name cryptocurrency based on blockchain technology. It can be emitted by any user who is a member of the system. To do this, you need to create new system blocks using a computing device.
The concept of the system was published in November 2008. The rapid growth in the popularity of bitcoin has occurred only in recent years. The emission of this cryptocurrency is limited, and now most of the bitcoins are “mined”.
