Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency, making it’s debut in 2009. At the same time it’s an innovative network of payments using peer-to-peer technology, where transactions or issuance of new Bitcoin is done collectively by the members of the network. Bitcoin is open source, public, is not under the control of any government, central authority or bank and anybody can take part in its development. It represents the future of the world financial system.
Blockchain is a database distributed on millions of computers around the world, which registers transactions between parties. Registering and verifying the transactions is done through data blocks so that the transactions can not be modified later.
