Virtual currencies are a decentralized form of “electronic cash” that users send to each other through a peer-to-peer payment system in exchange for goods and services. Consumers and investors have long debated the new type of currency’s long-term legitimacy. While some have flocked to use and invest in virtual currencies, others warn of a possible bubble in the making.

This whitepaper offers an introduction to the world of virtual currencies.

With that context, we then provide an overview of the predominant virtual currency, Bitcoin.
