But what exactly is it?
And how does it work?
The short answer is that it’s not a digital currency, but a blockchain-based distributed ledger.
The key difference between bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is that bitcoins are “blockchain” currencies that are linked together to form a global network.
This means that they are not stored in any one place, but rather are distributed across the world.
The blockchain is an open ledger of transactions, where all the data on each bitcoin is encrypted by a secure algorithm.
Each bitcoin is identified by a unique number, and that number is linked to each of its peers through a network of computers.
This allows bitcoin to track and track others, making it more secure than traditional cryptocurrencies.
The more transactions a bitcoin transaction has, the more valuable it becomes and the more value it has to offer to those who have it.
In the past, it was easy to buy bitcoin with dollars.
That changed with the rise of the cryptocurrency craze and the rise in value of the new digital currency.
The price of bitcoin doubled in value after a spike in the first quarter of 2018.
Since then, it has risen by almost 300 per cent, from about $15 to more than $400 per coin.
This rise in the price of a bitcoin has been accompanied by a rise in its value.
In 2016, bitcoin was trading at around $3,000.
That dropped to about $700 in 2018.
The value of a dollar in 2018 was around $6.25.
It is now trading at $4,000 or more, according to CoinDesk.
The other major difference between the two cryptocurrencies is the amount of digital currency that exists on the blockchain.
Bitcoin is created on computers around the world, but it is also linked to a vast network of bitcoin mining nodes in China.
The vast majority of bitcoin miners use computers with specialized hardware and processing power to mine the digital currency; there are around 1.2 million of them worldwide.
But the blockchain, or shared ledger, keeps track of the transactions, so that anyone on the network can see who owns a bitcoin.
A bitcoin is worth what a dollar is worth today.
So a bitcoin bought with a dollar today would be worth more than a dollar bought a few months ago.
But, there are a few other differences between a dollar and a bitcoin: the amount and type of digital money that is used on the ledger is different.
It would be more like an annuity or a bank account, which are different than a traditional financial instrument.
The amount of bitcoin stored on the Bitcoin blockchain varies between 20 million and 250 million.
This is because the network keeps track by comparing the bitcoin transactions on the bitcoin network to the total amount of bitcoins on the global ledger, which is updated continuously.
There are also a few differences between how much people can spend and how much money a bitcoin can be worth.
The most common bitcoin transaction is for a digital dividend payment, or in this case, a “bitcoin sale”.
This payment is a lump sum of bitcoins that are divided among all the people who have them.
These are known as bitcoin dividends, or dimes, because they are given out in bitcoin as a reward to people who do well.
This payment can be made with cash, credit cards, or even a smartphone.
This payment is similar to the payments made by banks in the US and many other countries.
But it is less secure than cash because it is tied to a unique code that can be found on the digital ledger.
So, if someone who owns bitcoins wants to spend them, they can use a phone to send a payment to a Bitcoin address linked to the address they want to send it to.
This allows them to buy bitcoins from the bitcoin address.
But they can’t just send bitcoins to a bitcoin address in their own name.
They have to send the bitcoins to the bitcoin addresses of people they want the bitcoins sent to.
Bitcoin exchanges like Coinbase, the leading bitcoin exchange in the world and the leading Bitcoin wallet provider, are designed to help users make payments using bitcoins and convert them into fiat currency.
But for people who don’t have a lot of bitcoins, they don’t offer this option.
They’re essentially just giving you bitcoins for nothing, and the reason for that is because bitcoin isn’t backed by any kind of government.
There is a very strict regulation in place on the internet to protect people from the theft of their bitcoins.
For example, if you buy bitcoins with cash and then sell them on the dark web, the government will try to trace the purchase back to the buyer and take it to court.
But there are many other rules on the way to protect your bitcoins from being stolen.
You can’t buy bitcoin from China, for example
