You might or might not have heard of the latest trend in digital money Bitcoin, Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. No one controls it.  A software developer called Satoshi Nakamoto proposed bitcoin, which was an electronic payment system based on mathematical proof. The idea was to produce a currency independent of any central authority, transferable electronically, more or less instantly, with very low transaction fees. Bitcoins are not physical and are digitally created by a community of people that anyone can join and they based on mathematics.
