Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the first form of decentralized (meaning it is not controlled by any organization or government) digital currency that can be exchanged from peer to peer for goods and services. Bitcoins are designed around the idea of using cryptography to control the creation and transfer of money, rather than relying on central authorities.

There is a limited number of Bitcoins in circulation and new Bitcoins are created at a predictable and decreasing rate. A fixed number of Bitcoins means they are a commodity whose worth is determined by supply and demand (similar to stocks).

How do you get a Bitcoin?

Bitcoins are “mined” through a process where specialized computers search algorithms to solve difficult mathematical problems. Every time they find a solution, a Bitcoin is generated.

You can earn Bitcoin through “mining,” accepting them as payment for goods or services, or purchasing them at a Bitcoin exchange.
