Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment system and digital currency introduced as open source software in 2009 by pseudonymous developer Satoshi Nakamoto. It is a cryptocurrency, so-called because it uses cryptography to control the creation and transfer of money. Users send payments by broadcasting digitally signedmessages to the network. Participants known as miners verify, timestamp, and record transactions into a shared public database called the block chain, for which they are rewarded with transaction fees and newly minted bitcoins.
Bitcoin has been a subject of scrutiny due to ties with illicit activity. In 2013 the FBI shut down the Silk Road online black market and seized US$28.5 million worth of bitcoins. However, the United States is currently considered to be Bitcoin friendly compared to other governments. In China, new rules mean bitcoins cannot be exchanged for local currency, and the European Banking Authority has warned that Bitcoin lacks consumer protections. Theft of bitcoins can occur, and chargebacks are impossible.
Commercial use of Bitcoin, illicit or otherwise, is currently small compared to its use by speculators, which has fueled price volatility. Bitcoin as a form of payment for products and services has seen growth, however, and merchants have an incentive to accept the currency because transaction fees are lower than the 2-3% typically imposed by credit card processors. Notable vendors accepting bitcoin include OkCupid, Reddit, and Virgin Galactic.
