Can I Buy $10 of Bitcoin?

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: Warning: Purchasing Bitcoin can be a risky and uncertain investment. Before investing in Bitcoin, it is important to understand the potential risks associated with it. Additionally, the value of Bitcoin can fluctuate greatly, meaning you may lose money. It is recommended that you research and understand all of the possible risks before investing in any cryptocurrency.

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.
