Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system.

The domain bitcoin.org was registered in August of 2008 and in October, Satoshi Nakamoto announced his work on an electronic cash system that requires no assistance from a third party. The first official Bitcoin block was mined in January 2009, known as the genesis block, it contains the text, "The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks." The first version of Bitcoin software was announced shortly after, with Bitcoin mining commencing in earnest the next day.
Satoshi Nakamoto is famously associated with the release of Bitcoin, however no one knows for sure who invented the cryptocurrency. In the years since its release in 2009, many individuals have claimed to be the real-life person behind the pseudonym. To this day, the true identity behind Satoshi remains concealed.

Blockchain

The blockchain operates and relies on a shared public ledger that stores all confirmed transactions. It allows Bitcoin to calculate your spendable balance, so new transactions can be verified. Cryptography enforces the integrity and chronological order of these blocks.

Transactions

The transfer of value between Bitcoin wallets is defined as the transaction of the blockchain. The private key or seed is the secret piece of data stored in Bitcoin wallets that can be used to sign transactions and provide proof they’ve come from the wallet of the owner. The signature also prevents transactions from being altered by anyone. All transactions are broadcast to the network and are generally confirmed within minutes through mining.

Processing

Processing or mining is used to confirm pending transactions. By including them in the blockchain, it can enforce chronological order and protect the neutrality of the network, allowing for different computers to agree on the system.

In order to be confirmed, a transaction must be packed in a block that fits the strict cryptographic rules verified by the network. These rules help to prevent modification of previous blocks that would invalidate sequencing. Mining also prevents individuals from creating new blocks to the chain, like a competitive lottery. Groups or individuals can't control what’s included in a block chain or replace parts of it.
