created January 2009
Bitcoin was born in January 2009 as a decentralized digital currency by the pseudonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto. To this day his real identity remains a mystery, but other then to those who are overly curious, his identity matters little. This is because Bitcoin is a true open and decentralized digital currency, meaning anyone can view the full code and verify exactly how it works. Just as math works, and 2+2 equals 4, Bitcoin itself is pure math and every function of it can be verified. Furthermore, it is decentralized, meaning the same copy of the bitcoin ledger in ran on countless computers throughout the world, with no head, leader, state, or nation in control. It is the most pure and natural grassroots movement the world has ever seen.
Everyone should read the bitcoin white paper at least once. In total, the entire thing is less than nine pages long.
