Help | What is bitcoin?
Bitcoin can be used to buy things electronically. In that sense, it's like conventional dollars, euros, or yen, which are also traded digitally.
But bitcoin’s most important characteristic, and the thing that makes it different to conventional money, is that it is decentralized. No single institution controls the bitcoin network. This puts some people at ease, because it means that a large bank can’t control their money.

BITCOIN EXCLUSIVES
Here is a list of things that you can only do with Bitcoin:
  • Spend and transfer money internationally for less than a penny.
  • Sell on the Internet without setting up with a payment service.
  • Protect your wealth from devaluation by the government.
  • Donate to any Bitcoin-accepting organization anywhere.

BITCOIN IS BETTER THAN REGULAR CURRENCIES
Some of the reasons Bitcoin is better than regular currencies:
  • Bitcoin is an International currency
  • Bitcoin can be spent all over the world.
  • Bitcoins cannot be counterfeited.
  • There is no printing technology that will ever be able to fool the bitcoin network.
  • Bitcoin cannot be devalued.
  • Only 21 million Bitcoins will ever be issued. Unlike regular currencies, since Bitcoin is not controlled by any government or bank, the raising of a debt ceiling and quantitative easing can not devalue Bitcoins.

TECHNOLOGY
Bitcoins are implemented using the latest trusted technologies:
  • The same cryptography that powers Internet banking.
  • Peer-to-peer networking protects Bitcoin from governmental or individual interference.
  • Allows anyone to audit and improve the Bitcoin source code.
