What Is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin was the first Cryptocurrency to launch. It was invented in 2008 by the man, the myth, the legend that is Satoshi Nakamoto, with the first Bitcoin being cast into the wild in 2009 when its source code was released as open-source software. Since then, Bitcoin has fast rocketed to the international phenomenon it is in 2019, paving the way for several Altcoins to emerge, like Ethereum, and sending its value on the rise (overall).

What Can You Do With Bitcoin?
Quite a lot, actually. Despite being developed to serve a real-life purpose, most people use Cryptocurrency as a means of investment, but it's actually support to be a form of tender. That means you can send it and spend it just as you would a Dollar. There's no shortage of retailers that accept it, either — Expedia, Microsoft, and even Subway (although the latter depends on the location) all accept Bitcoin as a means of payment.
