What is BitCoin and Cryptocurrency?

what is bitcoin


In simplest terms, Bitcoin is just another currency. The term Bitcoin refers to the entire currency system, where bitcoins are the basic units of the currency.

as with dollars, euros, yen and gold coins, you can spend and save

Bitcoin has become one of the most popular and fastest-growingย digital currencies in the world today. The cryptocurrency was created in 2009 by an anonymous group or individual known as Satoshi Nakamoto and operates on a decentralized, peertopeer network. By using blockchain technology, users are able to send and receive payments directly to each other without the need for the involvement of thirdparty intermediaries. Bitcoin has become increasingly popular due to its ability to store value, provide security and privacy, and offer greater transparency than traditional bank transactions. Bitcoin is available for purchase and/or trading on many online exchanges and is accepted by some businesses as a form of payment. It is important to understand that.

A digital currency is one that can be easily stored and used on a computer. By this definition, even dollars can be considered a digital currency, since they can be easily sent to others or used to shop online, but their supply is controlled by a centralized bank organization. In contrast, gold coins are decentralized, meaning that no central authority controls the supply of gold in the world. In fact, anyone can dig for gold, create new coins, and distribute them. However, unlike digital currencies, it’s not easy to use gold coins to pay for goods (at least not with exact change!), and it’s impossible to transfer gold coins over the Internet. Because Bitcoin combines these two.

My Opinion
  1. If bitcoins are adopted widely as local currency, then bank will begin to fail and the loans from banks will start costing more

  2. which will lead to people establishing a bitcoin loan facility which will or might be a peer to peer n rating system to put credentials and trustworthiness of lenders such a system is already present today but deals with real cash.

  3. There can be a deficit in bitcoin currency conversion

  4. The M1, M2, and M3 cash types will be unpredictable in the economy and might become more ambiguous and lessย reliable as you are uncertain of the future

  5. Why, because knowing we so don’t know what people are spending on and their trends

  6. The government will become poor, the government uses banks to invest and load money to another country M2 form of money knows that civilians are trading in bitcoins the actual cash is not in circulation leading to less money in the hands of the government

  7. The same reason is applied to the increase in loan rates in the fall of banks

  8. I am not sure about the function of the government, which is poor- has fewer capital funds/civilian

  9. In case of war, the turnout is unpredictable. there will be an army of hackers that will bring the entire nation down
