BTC is a decentralized digital currency introduced in 2008 by an individual or a group known as Satoshi Nakamoto.
It was launched in January 2009 and operates on a P2P network, allowing direct transactions between participants without the need for intermediaries.
Nakamoto’s intention was to create a system for sending payments online directly between parties without depending on financial institutions.
Although there were earlier ideas of decentralized cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was the first to be implemented and used.
