Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is the first decentralized, open source cryptocurrency that runs on a global peer-to-peer network, without the need for middlemen and a centralized issuer. A single bitcoin is made up of satoshis, specifically, 1 bitcoin = 100,000,000 satoshis. A satoshi is a unit of the decentralized, digital currency which can be traded for goods and services. Bitcoin also functions as a reserve currency for the altcoin ecosystem.
