Bitcoin is currently the leading cryptocurrency in the world and it's used by around 5 million users. Bitcoin was invented in 2008 and was initially released in January 2009. The digital currency is decentralized, meaning that it isn't controlled by banks or a government.
Bitcoin is a file stored in a digital wallet and can be sent (whole or as a part) to people, or used to pay for products and services. Each transaction made with Bitcoin is recorded on a public list, constructed using blockchain technology, which makes the history traceable, meaning it's secure and stops people from spending fake coins they do not own.
Bitcoins are originally created with a computer using a process called mining, where computers have to work to solve complex problems and are rewarded with Bitcoins when solved, but you can buy them with real money or by exchanging them for items.
