Bitcoin P2P Cryptcurrency

Registered 2010-07-22 by Melvin Carvalho

Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer network based digital currency. Peer-to-peer (P2P) means that there is no central authority to issue new money or keep track of transactions. Instead, these tasks are managed collectively by the nodes of the network.

Advantages:
- Transfer money easily through the Internet, without having to trust middlemen.
- Third parties can’t prevent or control your transactions.
- Bitcoin transactions are practically free, whereas credit cards and online payment systems typically cost 1-5% per transaction plus various other merchant fees up to hundreds of dollars.

Bitcoin is an open source project created by Satoshi Nakamoto, and is currently in beta development stage. Bitcoin development is hosted on GitHub at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.
