How Much Does It Cost to Buy 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: Buying Bitcoin can be an expensive and risky process. Before purchasing Bitcoin, make sure to thoroughly research the current cost of the cryptocurrency. Additionally, be aware that there is a risk of losses associated with buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies due to market fluctuations and other factors. Investing in cryptocurrencies may not be suitable for all investors, so it is important to understand the risks associated before making any investment decisions.

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.
