Here’s all that you must know about bitcoin

On 3 January 2009, the bitcoin network was created when Nakamoto mined the starting block of the chain, known as the genesis block. ... In 2010, the first known commercial transaction using bitcoin occurred when programmer Laszlo Hanyecz bought two Papa John's pizzas for ₿10,000.
Bitcoins work on three main principles - cryptography, demand and supply, and decentralized networks. In a decentralized network, data is everywhere. Similar to how radio messages were converted into code during World War II, bitcoin uses cryptography to keep transaction data secure.


According to a study ‘Bitcoin - At the Tipping Point’ authored by Kathleen Boyle, managing editor, Citi GPS in March 2021, the market value of bitcoin in 2014, when it was just five years old, was around $6.2 billion. The First Citi GPS venture into digital currency was in 2014 when it featured in their second Disruptive Innovations report.
Boyle notes that the uptake of bitcoin in the past 7 years (since the 2014 report) has been quite extraordinary. From a market value of around $6.2 billion, the market capitalization of bitcoin due to increased usage and value hit $1 trillion in February 2021. It has also created a whole new ecosystem around it.
The evolution of the bitcoin ecosystem will see the private and public sectors face new challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities. Governments may discover new methods for executing their mission as regulator and law enforcer. Corporates may use this technology to come up with innovative products and services.
Adding transactions to a public ledger creates bitcoins from bitcoin mining. An algorithm controls mining difficulty and has limited total coin creation to 21 million. Since coins are created and distributed via a controlled algorithm, the system avoids inflation of the currency and ensures a steady flow of new coins.
