Bitcoin is 10 years old

Bitcoin has carved out a name for itself as the world's most popular cryptocurrency since arriving on the scene ten years ago.

Bitcoin is a decentralised virtual currency created from computer code in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis.

Unlike a traditional currency such as the dollar, euro or yen, bitcoin has no central bank and is not backed by any government.
