About Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in the market. First introduced in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin has held the crypto market’s number one spot according to market capitalization. Bitcoin paved the way for many existing altcoins in the market and marked a pivotal moment for digital payment solutions.  

As the world’s first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin has come a long way in terms of its value. However, one does not have to buy an entire bitcoin as bitcoins can be divided into small units called satoshis, named after the creator. A satoshi is equivalent to 0.00000001 bitcoin.

There is no physical BTC token so you can think of bitcoin as digital money. Bitcoin transactions are fully transparent and can’t be censored. You can send money to anyone in the world with ease. It’s a financial system backed by thousands of computers, known as ‘nodes’, around the world, instead of a single central bank or government, i.e. hence the term ‘decentralization’. 

Bitcoin Upgrades

Because Bitcoin is decentralized and community-driven, many upgrades to Bitcoin come in the form of formal proposals called Bitcoin Improvement Proposals, or BIPs. This ensures that the software is always undergoing upgrades that can further contribute to the community’s needs. Anyone can propose a BIP, and the community will reject or approve of the BIP collectively. One major upgrade to Bitcoin’s consensus protocol is the SegWit Upgrade, proposed in BIP 141 and designed to help the bitcoin scale to support more transactions to meet growing demand. BIPs like these change Bitcoin’s consensus rules, resulting in forks. 

Bitcoin Forks

Forks are the points where software is copied and modified, resulting in two chains with a shared original chain. There are two types of forks–soft and hard forks. Soft forks are upgrades that still allow un-upgraded nodes to interact with upgraded nodes. Hard forks are upgrades that do not allow un-upgraded nodes to interact with upgraded ones. Bitcoin Cash is an example of a hard fork of Bitcoin.

Because Bitcoin is decentralized, it is not subjected to inflation or any monetary policies created by any central banks or government. Instead, there will only ever be 21 million BTC in existence.

Common Bitcoin Misconceptions 

Bitcoin is just a passing phase.

Bitcoin and blockchain technology introduce solutions for real-world issues, seeking to help the unbanked population, combat counterfeiting and improve cross-border transactions to name a few. Even if we disregard the notion of bitcoin as a speculative asset or store of value, it is likely here to stay and disrupt many sectors.

Bitcoins can be copied and pasted, making them easy to counterfeit.

No, thanks to the Bitcoin protocol, your bitcoin cannot be copied. The word ‘crypto’ in ‘cryptocurrency’ comes from the word ‘cryptography’, a technique that allows for secure communication, meaning that it is impossible to counterfeit bitcoin, unlike fiat. In fact, Bitcoin solves the issue of double-spending, a loophole in traditional digital cash that allows a user to spend the same amount of funds twice.

Bitcoin is bad for the environment.

A significant percentage of bitcoin mining uses renewable energy (wind, solar, hydro etc) instead of traditional energy sources that are bad for the environment. 


People Also Ask: Other Questions About Bitcoin

  1. How Many Bitcoins Are There? 

    Bitcoin has a circulating supply of 18,832,712 BTC and a maximum supply of 21,000,000 (21 Million) BTC tokens.

  2. What Role Does Bitcoin Have as a Store of Value?

    Bitcoin is valued as a useful form of money, and is measured by its growth of users, merchants and accepted locations.

  3. How Is Bitcoin (BTC) Different From Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?

    Bitcoin's block size is capped at 1 MB, while Bitcoin Cash's block size is capped at 32 MB.

  4. Why Do Bitcoin Price Changes Impact Other Coins?

    Due to its pioneer status, a lot of investors view it as the crypto market’s reserve so other coins depend on its value to remain high. 

  5. How Secure Is Bitcoin?

    Bitcoin is secured with a Proof-of-Work (PoW) mechanism,  which means millions of miners work together to secure the decentralized network. Each miner keeps a record of all transactions. Forcing a transaction is impossible because they would have to control 51% of all miners. 

  6. What Is Bitcoin Mining?

    Bitcoin mining is the process where miners contribute the processing power of their hardware rigs to solve cryptographic puzzles from each transaction on the Bitcoin blockchain.  Miners receive BTC for solving cryptographic puzzles, and transactions are recorded in blocks that get added to the blockchain. 

  7. How Can I Store My Bitcoin?

    Because BTC is a digital currency, it is stored in a digital wallet. Here are two ways to store your Bitcoin:

    1. Store your BTC on Binance exchange

    If you are looking for quick access to your BTC to facilitate trading, you can consider storing your Bitcoin on the Binance exchange. 

    1. Store your BTC in a Bitcoin wallet

    Alternatively, you can store your BTC in an external BTC wallet. There are hot and cold wallet solutions available in the market with different pros and cons, so you can explore the options to see which one suits you best.

Circle Taps New York Community Bank as its Latest Custodian for USDC Reserves
Circle has tapped a New York state-based community bank as its latest custodial provider for USDC reserves. The move reflects Circle’s strategy to deepen partnerships with Community Banks across the U.S., attempting to make payments more inclusive to underserved communities.Under the new agreement, New York Community Bancorp’s bank subsidiary, New York Community Bank, will become a custodian for USDC reserves.The two companies will leverage their strengths in their respective fields to promote access to “low-cost financial solutions for underserved and unbanked communities,” according to Circle’s official statement.The news came months after the stablecoin issuer announced the Wall Street giant BNY Mellon as its primary custodian for USDC. The two parties worked on building bridges between legacy and digital capital markets and “the exploration of digital cash for purposes of settlement.”In comparison to BNY Mellon holding roughly $45 trillion worth of assets in custody, New York Community Bank is a relatively small bank, only having assets of $61.0 billion by March 31st, 2022.The plan represents Circle’s commitment to its long-term goal of allocating a share of its reserve to Minority-owned Depository Institutions (MDIs), in a bid to “reach billions of dollars in deposits over time across the footprint of underrepresented financial institutions.”Dante Disparte, Chief Strategy Officer and Head of Global Policy at Circle, viewed the partnership as a critical step in extending the firm’s connections to the community’s level.“By partnering with NYCB, we are opening up new pathways for community banks and MDIs across the country to be key participants in the fast growing digital assets market. Circle’s USDC witnessed an increase in net inflows amid extreme volatility dominating the crypto market. Holding only cash and short-term U.S. government bonds as the assets backing its 1:1 peg to the U.S. dollar, a relatively conservative strategy that prioritizes stability and compliance to regulators, USDC – trailing only to the largest stablecoin USDT – is the fourth-largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of nearly $56 billion.

Bitcoin fell below $19,000 at one point on Thursday following the U.S. Securities and Exchange's (SEC) rejection of two spot bitcoin ETFs, a reprimand for troubled crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital and the latest drumbeat of discouraging economic indicators, but subsequently regained ground."Bitcoin price action remains weak, with some volatility seen on both sides, which is typical in pauses between trend continuations," Joe DiPasquale, CEO of crypto asset manager BitBull Capital, wrote in an email to CoinDesk. "Currently, we expect BTC to see more downside action but we are also keenly watching the market's reactions to assess a decline in selling momentum and interest."Ether, the second-largest crypto by market cap, was changing hands below $1,100 and little changed from the previous day. Other cryptos among the CoinDesk top 25 by market cap were mixed with some flat, a few rising slightly and others in the red. MATIC was recently down nearly 5% but AXS was up over 3%.Crypto prices continued the pattern they've largely followed in recent months of tracking equity indexes. The tech-heavy Nasdaq and S&P 500, which has a heavy tech component, both closed up about a 1%. The upswings were a rare break from the steady declines that have sent both indexes into bear market territory, meaning they have both lost at least 20% of their value from their last highs.Rising inflation, the looming prospect of recession and geo-political unrest have forced investors into risk averse defensive crouches. Last Wednesday U.S. Federal Reserve ChairJerome Powell reiterated the central bank's commitment to tame inflation even at the expense of economic contraction. And separate reports by the University of Michigan and U.S. Conference Board have shown consumer confidence in the economy waning.Meanwhile, the crypto industry spent much of Friday wrestling with the latest fallout from Three Arrows Capital's liquidity problems and other events with crypto broker Voyager Digital (VYGVF) temporarily suspending all trading, deposits, withdrawals and loyalty rewards. CoinDesk also reported that troubled crypto lender Babel Finance had hired U.S. investment banking firm Houlihan Lokey, a specialist in restructuring and distressed mergers and acquisitions.BitBull's DiPasquale, who in recent weeks has seen an increasing likelihood of bitcoin support sinking into the low to mid teens, remained pessimistic about a rebound, short of the Fed offering some encouraging signs at its July meeting."June's closing was not very optimistic, and July might remain choppy unless the FOMC meeting near the end of the month presents any surprises.MarketsS&P 500: 3,825 +1%DJIA: 31.097 +1%Nasdaq: 11,127 +0.9%Gold: $1,807 +.03%InsightsThe Monetary Authority of Singapore's Reprimand May Only Be a First Step to AddIn early 2021 Three Arrows Capital reported a $1.2 billion position in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), evenly split between its entities in Singapore and the British Virgin Islands.But there’s a slight problem.In Singapore, Three Arrows Capital is only registered to manage assets under $250 million (US$179.9 million) – well under what its position in GBTC is worth.(New York-based Grayscale, the manager of GBTC, is owned by Digital Currency Group, the parent company of CoinDesk.)There was likely a lot of leverage involved as Three Arrows bought into GBTC as part of a premium harvesting play. Super leverage that, according to the opinion of one analyst, helped cause the current crypto winter when the whole thing collapsed.Regardless, the Monetary Authority of Singapore isn’t happy. Late Thursday, MAS issued a public reprimand of Three Arrows Capital for providing “misleading information to the regulator and exceeding the threshold set for assets under management.”Questions should have been asked by the media around the time that Three Arrows filed its GBTC position with the SEC about how the firm was doing it. Crypto and business publications should have been bolder because the fund’s management team owed the industry an explanation of how this arrangement worked.We’ll probably be hearing more from MAS about Three Arrows in the near future. One interesting note in MAS’s notice is that Three Arrows informed the regulator of its intent to cease operations in the Lion City in early May, presumably as part of its move to Dubai – which hasn’t yet happened.MAS also notes that “in light of recent developments which call into question the solvency of the fund managed by [Three Arrows], MAS is assessing if there were further breaches by [Three Arrows] of MAS’s regulations.“Get your popcorn.Let’s see if management declares the Singapore fund insolvent, as it did its BVI counterpart.Important eventsU.S. Independence Day holiday9:30 a.m. HKT/SGT(1:30 a.m. UTC): Australia Building Permits (MoM/YoY/May)9 a.m. HKT/SGT(1 a.m. UTC): Australia TD Securities Inflation (June)CoinDesk TVIn case you missed it, here is the most recent episode of the Hash on CoinDesk TV:Genesis Faces ‘Hundreds of Millions’ in Losses, Three Arrows Capital’s Troubles Deepen"The Hash" team discussed today's top stories including Grayscale's lawsuit against the Securities and Exchange Commission over its spot bitcoin exchange-traded fund rejection and Genesis's ginormous loss partly due to Three Arrows Capital exposure.
