Overview of Bitcoin
Bitcoin is the first decentralized cryptocurrency introduced in 3 January 2009 by an unknown entity naming himself Satoshi Nakamoto. The idea and purpose of Bitcoin is to make decentralized and pseudo-anonymous transactions. It uses proof-of-work system to create new coins. It has a block creation time of 10 minutes in average and block size of 1MB. As of 2009 (creation of bitcoin), each block gave you 50 btc to the miner of that block, that value being halved every 4 years (giving today 12.5 per block). Smallest unit is called one satoshi which is 0.00000001 bitcoin or one hundred millionth of a bitcoin. Bitcoin also has transaction fees which, miners get verifying transactions. The technology used in bitcoin is very limited on creation of smart contracts. Bitcoin can handle up to 3.3 – 7 transactions per second.
