Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.

About Bitcoin (BTC)

Created by the mysterious figure of Satoshi Nakamoto back in 2009, Bitcoin is the defacto cryptocurrency built on a decentralized ledger, known as the blockchain. This peer-to-peer network has the ability to send and receive transactions in a permissionless, trustless manner, as detailed in its white paper, released one year earlier in 2008.

The project is built on open-source software, which means anyone in the world can audit, contribute, and improve its code and/or documentation.
