Bitcoin - первая и крупнейшая по капитализации криптовалюта, положившая начало совеременной криптоиндустрии. Главным преимуществом перед привычной банковской системой является тот факт, что сеть биткоина является децентрализованной. Сам блокчейн является открытым, копии хранятся на огромном количестве компьютеров по всему миру. Каждый может свободно получить информацию о любой транзакции, и никто не может вывести из строя систему, заблокировав один или несколько серверов.

Торги биткоинами осуществляются на специализированных критовалютных биржах, а на классической фондовой бирже, например CME, доступны производные инструменты, такие как фьючерсные контракты. Многие страны мира уже начали формировать законодательство, регулирующее оборот биткоинов, однако большинство стран по прежнему не признает биткоин в качестве законного платежного средства.
