Bitcoin is the world's first open-source and decentralized peer-to-peer payment network created by the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. It operates pure P2P electronic transactions, allowing online payments from one party to another without going to any financial institution. The consensus algorithm is used for Bitcoin Proof-of-Work (PoW).
