Bitcoin is digital money that is not issued or  controlled by any central organization. Using  encryption technology, it can store and transfer value anywhere in the world. It can be used to buy goods and services, store wealth, or send value without the permission of a third party such as banks or governments.
 
No single organization runs the Bitcoin network. Instead, it is a decentralized network of  computers around the world that keeps track of all Bitcoin transaction—all without human  intervention.
 
Bitcoin is also the name of the payment network on which the Bitcoin digital tokens move.  It is a  relatively new technology first introduced in 2009 whose value has accelerated like no other asset class in recorded history.
 
This presentation will be an introduction to Bitcoin and how it works.
