Bitcoin:
A short introduction

What is the Bitcoin?

The Bitcoin is a currency, just as the Euro or the US Dollar, that serves to exchange goods and services. However, differently to other currencies, the Bitcoin is a virtual currency that presents innovative characteristics and stands out for its efficiency, security and payment readiness.

When we purchase using the Bitcoin we do not need to reveal crucial information just like credit card numbers of bank accounts, thus eliminating any risk this information may be hacked away from the online vendor.
