However, most people do not understand exactly what it is and how they can benefit from it. Bitcoin is the world's first and most successful cryptocurrency. A cryptocurrency is a digital currency that uses cryptography technology to secure the system and all transactions. Bitcoin uses a decentralized ledger system and functions without any central authority. It does not fall under the jurisdiction of any public body such as a government regulator or central bank. It is primarily an online digital payment system that was released in 2009. By 2013, it had attracted the attention of people all over the world. According to research by Cambridge University, there are between 3 and 6 million Bitcoin users around the world. The major attraction of Bitcoin is its rapid price gain.

This is an indicator of how lucrative Bitcoin is and why many investors are showing increased interest in it.
