What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the first decentralized digital currency. It was made possible by a breakthrough in computer science which brought together decades worth of research into decentralized systems and digital cash. Bitcoin made it possible for digital goods to be scarce (uncopyable) without any centralized institution controlling it. Bitcoin is used as electronic cash and digital gold.

Supply Details

The rate at which new bitcoins are created is algorithmically cut in half roughly every 4 years (210,000 blocks). Bitcoin has gone through two halvings to date; in November 2012, and again in July 2016. Since blocks are generated every 10 minutes on average, and starting at 50 new bitcoins per block when the system was launched in 2009, this creates a very well-defined supply curve. The stability of Bitcoin's monetary policy a key differentiator versus other crypto assets.
