What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and a payment system introduced in 2008. The system is peer-to-peer and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary (ie bank). These transactions are verified by an open network and recorded in a public ledger called the blockchain. Since the system works without a central repository or single administrator, no government or central bank can manipulate it. The US Treasury defines it as a decentralized, virtual currency. However, the IRS treats it as a commodity for taxation. Bitcoin is the largest of its kind in terms of total market value of $13.3 billion at time of this writing.
