Bitcoin is a digital currency allowing you to pay for purchases anywhere in the world, without going through a bank, and without disclosing the details of your bank card. It is an extremely reliable digital currency used by millions of people.
Bitcoin is also a new decentralised system for managing the exchange of securities, in other words a bankless and yet very reliable monetary system
- Fast and without borders: payments are made in seconds, between neighbours or from one end of the connected world to the other.
- Decentralised and controlled: Bitcoin does not belong to anything or anyone, it is a shared tool, as is the internet, the management of which is provided collectively by its users. The money supply of bitcoins is strictly regulated, avoiding hyperinflation and other money creation abuses.
- Secure and transparent: as soon as it is sent, your payment is tamper-proof. All bitcoin transactions are recorded in a public database, the blockchain, whose data and code are available to everyone.
