What is Bitcoin ?

Bitcoin consists a payment processing system (processing transactions using the cryptocurrency Bitcoin - BTC), built on the blockchain. The blockchain enables it to process transactions without a centralised processing system. The Bitcoin network enables peer-to-peer payments to be made in BTC.

What is the Bitcoin blockchain ?

The Bitcoin blockchain is a set of processed records of Bitcoin transactions, grouped in timestamped blocks of data which each point to the prior block, creating an immutable public record of all Bitcoin transactions (i.e. an electronic ledger).

Who processes Bitcoin payments ?

Payments are processed by autonomous miners, using computing hardware (e.g. 'mining rigs'). Miners compete to create blocks by solving a problem. The winner gets to add the block of transactions to the blockchain, and receives Bitcoin (and a transaction fee if there is one) as a reward. This creates the cryptocurrency.
