What Bitcoin actually is, how it works and who is behind its creation?


Bitcoin is an innovative way of putting various existing technologies in the right place and order that resulted in the creation of a global value exchange system for the digital world. In this system, it's not necessary to have a 3rd party enforcing transaction correctness, as people can now transact between themselves trustlessly online. The elimination of a 3rd party from transactions in digital commerce has given rise to cryptocurrency market explosion.
