am going to share with you just what you need to know about Bitcoin, and like they say in the universe, as I am watering you with knowledge, I am also watering myself. And to begin with, the name Bitcoin derives from "bit" - as in a unit of information in computing. Bitcoin is a system of online payment, while bitcoins are the virtual coinage used on the system.
1. Bitcoin was invented by someone under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto. And as nosy as the Journalists are, they have tracked someone by that name in California (Even though it is a Pseudonym), a former physicist who is about 60 years old, and he has denied knowing anything about Bitcoin.
2. In the year 2008, that person with the the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin.
3. In case you need to know, it is reported that about 3600 new Bitcoins are mined each day

5. It is estimated that it take on average 5 years, for a Bitcoin to go from $0.00 in value to about $1000.00 or 613 pounds.

8. Satoshi Nakamoto supposedly mined about 1 million Bitcoins in the early days.
9. The experts have said that only 21 million Bitcoins can ever be mined, and that will happen in the year 2140, as stated above.
10. Bitcoins were always supposed to be an online and virtual transaction only. But back in 2011, a company started selling physical Bitcoins, and quickly shut down once the U.S. Treasury found out about its illegal operations.
11. Would you believe that of all the Bitcoins that are out there, only 36% are actually being used, while the other 64% are laying dormant? Maybe some people are speculating and waiting for them to go up significantly before they begin using them.
