What is Bitcoin and what does its rate depend on

Bitcoin is the world's first cryptocurrency. This means that bitcoin has become the first payment alternative to national currencies issued by central banks. It had and continues to have a big impact on the bitcoin rate. Bitcoin has changed over the years. With bitcoin's popularity growing, its rate is rising. Bitcoin has seen three major adjustments so far. There are mainly four factors that influence the bitcoin rate. The first factor shaping the bitcoin rate is demand. It is produced by a community that wants to accumulate as many bitcoins as possible at the lowest possible rate. The answer to demand is the second rate-shaping factor, supply. The lower it is in relation to the demand, the higher the bitcoin rate. Bitcoin is a consensus-based currency. This means that high computing power is required to extract it. Therefore, the third factor shaping the bitcoin rate is the cost of electricity. The fourth factor results directly from the third factor. The bitcoin rate depends on the cost of the computers that mine bitcoin.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency founded in 2008, created by a person or group of people operating under the code name Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin is the first, widely known and used cryptocurrency based on blockchain technology. The idea behind bitcoin creators was to give people power over their money. For more than ten years, the bitcoin rate has grown several hundred thousand times, and its community is growing day by day. Bitcoin is based on a decentralized and distributed blockchain network. In the bitcoin network, all transactions are transparently saved and encrypted. This means that you can check at any time who sent how many bitcoins to whom.

How Bitcoin works?

Bitcoin is a database. Every 10 minutes or so, a new pool of records is added to the database (these are transactions). This 'append' is called a block. Each block is cryptographically encrypted and follows directly from the previous one. This makes it impossible to add artificial bitcoins to the database, as well as allows you to track each operation within the database.

Bitcoins are created in the mining process. A predetermined pool of bitcoins is created every 10 minutes. It is received by the Network User who adds a new transaction block. To add a new block of transactions to the bitcoin blockchain, the computing power used to encrypt data in the blockchain is required.
