Bitcoin is essentially a digital currency - a form of money stored in an owner's online "virtual wallet", free from the control of governments or central banks. Bitcoin was released in 2009 by someone going by the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto, who wanted a virtual currency that was unrestrained by regulation, he subsequently left the project. Cryptocurrency is therefore an attempt to replace money transactions with a digital medium of exchange using peer-to-peer networking. The first decentralized cryptocurrency, and still the most successful, is Bitcoin.
