Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. Unlike traditional physical currencies, like dollars or euros, bitcoins are not printed. Instead they’re produced by people running computers around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems. The way the encryption of Bitcoin takes place is a revolution in the field of information technology - the "Blockchain" technology, which has seen the value of Bitcoin and other similar Cryptocurrencies soar in 2017.
