What is Bitcoin ?

Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. No one controls it. Bitcoins aren’t printed, like dollars or euros – they’re produced by people, and increasingly businesses, running computers all around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems.

Bitcoins come from a mining process, but not the conventional physical mine where silver, gold, copper and nickel are plucked from the earth and sent to the mint. This mining process releases bitcoin into the marketplace when the miners solve a mathematical puzzle or unravel a complex code.

Bitcoin is rapidly gaining acceptance in the virtual marketplace and shows signs of purchase power in ever more mainstream businesses.Just like stocks and bonds, users can choose to hold or sell bitcoin at will.
