What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a decentralised, peer-to-peer cryptocurrency. As such, it can operate without the need for a centralised authority (such as a bank) for transactions. Created in 2009, Bitcoin has become more and more popular amongst traders with its current market cap exceeding 1 billion dollars. You can buy Bitcoin quickly and easily on a registered Bitcoin exchange like Swyftx.

Mining is the process that creates the digital currency where transaction validators who secure the network are rewarded in Bitcoin.

The history of Bitcoin in Canada

Bitcoin was first created in 2009 by a person or group using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. The true identity of Nakamoto is still yet to be revealed. The idea behind Bitcoin was to create a peer-to-peer cash system unlike any government-issued or fiat currencies. Since its founding, Bitcoin has soared to new heights and is accepted as a currency in several destinations across Canada. Canada is now seen to be one of the most Bitcoin-friendly countries in the world with both Toronto and Vancouver considered ‘Bitcoin hubs.’ In fact, Canada boasts the title of being the first-ever country to have a Bitcoin Automatic Teller Machine (ATM). Currently, there are thousands of Bitcoin ATMs scattered around the country allowing users to exchange Bitcoin assets for cash and vice-versa. For those looking to buy Bitcoin in Canada, simply sign up to the Swyftx Bitcoin Exchange and verify your ID.
