What is Bitcoin ?

BTC Bitcoin is the first, oldest and most dominant crypto currency in the market. The technology of proof-of-work with a long block producing (mining) time of 10 min might be a bit out of date already, but the network is the most decentralized and secure of all blockchains. The community is big and active.

Bitcoin was invented by Satoshi Nakamoto and meant to be a means of digital borderless payment, but since the transaction times are a bit long and the cost of a transaction can jump quite high, the coin has become more of a store of value and is compared to gold rather then a payment system. Wether new sidechains like lightning or liquid network can change this, will be seen in the near future.

Bitcoin is also the dominant trading pair on all leading exchanges, what keeps demand and trading volume of Bitcoin high. Although the majority of coins are in just a few hands and have not been moved for a long time.
