Digital Currency and Bitcoin
In recent years, digital currencies have gained popularity as a way to store and exchange value. Unlike traditional fiat currencies, which central banks issue, digital currencies are decentralized and not subject to government control. Bitcoin, the most well-known digital currency, was created in 2009 as a way to make transactions more efficient and secure. Since then, it has become the largest and most well-known digital currency, with over $100 billion in market capitalization.
