Bitcoins are completely virtual coins designed to be self contained for their value with no needs for bank to move and store the money. Once you have bitcoin, they behave like physical gold coins, they possess value and trade if they were nuggets of gold in your wallet/pocket. You can use your bitcoins to buy goods, items and pay bills.

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency created 8 years ago. It uses decentralised technology for secure payments and storing money that doesn't require banks or people's names. Now bitcoins are very popular. The future behind the crypto market.

Bitcoin is a virtual money in which privacy methods are used to manage the creation of currency and authenticate the fund’s transfer, working independently of a central bank. Two individuals can use it for an online transaction to each other.  In the last couple of weeks, you have apparently listened about Bitcoin uprising, a digital money that has been evolving at a good rate over the last several years. Bitcoin was lately in the news because of the virus attack in European countries along with others; i.e. [/size]Ransomware WannaCry[/color][/size]. These cyber-attacks were one of the largest attacks of this kind, affecting the systems around the world; and the anonymous hackers asked Ransom in Bitcoins. This is because transactions of Bitcoins are practically untraceable.[/color]

Bitcoin is pseudonymous, meaning that funds are not tied to real-world entities but rather bitcoin addresses. Owners of bitcoin addresses are not explicitly identified, but all transactions on the blockchain are public. In addition, transactions can be linked to individuals and companies through "idioms of use" (e.g., transactions that spend coins from multiple inputs indicate that the inputs may have a common owner) and corroborating public transaction data with known information on owners of certain addresses.
