Bitcoin (BTC) is a worldwide cryptocurrency and digital payment system invented by an unknown programmer, or a group of programmers, under the name Satoshi Nakamoto.
Not to be confused with the hard-fork Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin was released as open-source software in 2009. The system is peer-to-peer, and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary.
These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. Since the system works without a central repository or single administrator, bitcoin is called the first decentralized digital currency.Official website
To store Bitcoin we recommend that you setup your own cryptocurrency wallet. This gives you the freedom of truly owning your cryptocurrency and doesn't leave your private keys in the hands of a third-party.
There are several Bitcoin wallets available. From online wallets, mobile & desktop to hardware wallets, the choice is ultimately yours. You should consider basing your decision on your individual requirements. Each wallet type has different pro's and con's, which we have highlighted in our blog post.
