Bitcoin (BTC) is an Internet open-source P2P payment network and also the cryptocurrency used in this network. The main uniqueness of Bitcoin is its full decentralization; it is designed so that no one, not the author or other individuals, groups or governments, can influence the currency, counterfeit it, seize accounts, control money flows or cause inflation. There is no central point in the network, and no one who can make decisions about the network. The final amount of Bitcoins is known in advance and the release of Bitcoins into circulation is defined in the source code of the network. Payments take place on the network at minimal or no cost. The network has been operating since 2009, where it was described and created by a group of people signed as Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin (BTC) is the only asset that is successfully offsetting the global press side of the world’s central banks, according to analysts at brokerage firms involved in the virtual currency trade. Currently, during the European afternoon of Thursday 09/07/2023, at approximately 14:46 CET, this virtual currency Bitcoin was trading on the Coinbase digital currency market at a value of USD 25,660.10 per BTC with a slight strengthening of BTC by + 0.04% so far against the USD.
