What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a consensus network that enables a new payment system and completely digital money. It's the first decentralized peer-to-peer payment network, powered by its users with no central authority or middlemen.

Proponents of Bitcoin advocate that it's one of the most important creations in human history - an opportunity to reimagine how the financial system (and others) can and should work in the Internet era.
