Can I Borrow Bitcoin Without Collateral?

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator, that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries. Transactions are verified by network nodes through cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.

Bitcoin is unique in that there are a finite number of them: 21 million.

NOTE: This is a warning regarding the potential risks associated with borrowing Bitcoin without collateral. This type of transaction carries a high risk of loss and should be approached with caution. There is no guarantee that the borrower will be able to repay the loan and there may be significant financial losses incurred by both parties involved in the transaction. If you are considering borrowing Bitcoin without collateral, you should understand the risks associated and ensure that you are able to afford any potential losses that may result.

Bitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services.

As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment.
