Bitcoin is a digital currency which uses peer-to-peer technology to facilitate instant payments. The transaction of bitcoin is a transfer of value between Bitcoin wallets that gets included in the block chain. Bitcoin wallets keep a secret piece of data called a private key, which is used to sign transactions, providing a mathematical proof that they have come from the owner of the wallet. The below figure helps you to better understand the working of bitcoin.

Great article!! Really nice insights. I think some people struggle with claiming bitcoin as a currency because it's not something that they can "hold." We can hold dollars and coins. Of course, the newest generation won't have any prob seeing btc as a currency since everything is digital to them as it is -- they don't know any different.
I completely agree
