How did bitcoin start?
Bitcoin was first released as open-source software in January 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto. Satoshi Nakamoto is a programmer. No one knows about this person. Different people have been claiming themselves to be Satoshi Nakamoto in different places.
But to date, the real programmer of bitcoin is not known. In today’s time, many such programmers are engaged in making it more secure and strong. The original purpose of bitcoin was to issue money from one place to another without the help of any third party or any central authority.
Software related to bitcoin has been created all over the world. On 22 May 2010, 10 thousand bitcoins were offered for a pizza for the first time. At that time the price of 1 bitcoin was 10s or less.
But today the price of bitcoin has increased a thousand times. As more and more people buy bitcoin, its price is continuously increasing.
What is the value of bitcoin?
Value of bitcoin 5 years ago the price of one bitcoin was Rs 6. And the price of the same bitcoin today is around ₹ 45000. In India in 2015 the price of one bitcoin was ₹ 14000, in the year 2016 it increased to ₹ 30000 and today its price is ₹ 45000. According to some estimates, by next year the price of one bitcoin can be up to 6 lakhs.
How does bitcoin work?
Bitcoin transactions are done through peer-to-peer technology, that is, money is directly transferred from one computer to another. It is sent as a blockchain divided among the common people.
Just like a bank keeps track of your money, similarly, these blockchains keep track of every bitcoin. That is, its exchange at any place in the world is accounted for in this blockchain.
After this, every transaction is verified and the network keeps a record of it.
So it cannot be a fraud. This technology is made secure by thousands of people who monitor and check this exchange with the help of powerful computers. For this, whoever successfully does it is given some bitcoins as a reward.
This is called the mining of bitcoins. Thousands of people who verify this transaction in the code language continue to work as a clerk of the bank and they are called miners. These people keep an eye on the transaction so that it is not misused.
But while completing this process, these minors have to solve a math problem. When any minor solves this problem as quickly as possible. He gets about 12.5 bitcoins in return and thus enters the digital market.
But its economy has been built in such a way that after a time its number is reduced to half. Initially, 50 bitcoins were used to withdraw from 1 block. The number of bitcoins per block is halved every 4 years. That is, after about 125 years, the creation of new bitcoins will stop. By then there will be 20 million bitcoins in the world. Bitcoin will run out soon, so people are competing to buy more and more of it.
What is a bitcoin wallet?
A bitcoin wallet is a software program. It is used to store bitcoin. In the true sense, where to go, bitcoin is not kept anywhere. Any bitcoin has its own private number i.e. code.
