What is Bitcoin?


Since 2008 Bitcoin has slowly been revolutionising the way our financial system works. Over 10 years later and the value of one Bitcoin has grown on average 200% a year. It’s adoption continues with El Salvador making it legal tender in June 2021. Only history will be able to tell us in the years ahead as to how it all works out, but please read the reports linked at the bottom of this page before you decide.

To watch a brief video explanation of Bitcoin click below.

Please don’t make the mistake of thinking you can’t afford to buy one bitcoin if you want to. You can buy a fraction of a Bitcoin or any of the Altcoins. Helping you learn more about Bitcoin, Alt Coins and Blockchain is the only reason this website exists. What you do with your new knowledge is totally up to you. Happy learning.

Why Bitcoin is another great question. Michael Saylor crashed into the Bitcoin scene in 2020 with a massive corporate and personal acquisition of Bitcoin. He quickly became one of the best people to explain why Bitcoin. He’s the interviewer rather than the interviewee in this video but it’s one of the best hours on bitcoin available!
