Bitcoin is a digital currency, invented by Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin is a digital cryptocurrency, which makes it anonymous, sort of like cash.
Transactions are made through a bitcoin wallet, which can be obtained from one of several websites. Each wallet contains one or more bitcoin addresses, which are used to keep track of all of your transactions. A public ledger is kept, which displays ongoing bitcoin transactions as they are processed in the blockchain.
Each bitcoin is divided into satoshis. Most fiat currencies are carried out to two decimal points, while bitcoin can be carried out to eight decimal points, allowing for extremely minute monetary amounts to be spent or received.
A bitcoin faucet donates small amounts of satoshi to its visitors, simply by entering their bitcoin address, and solving a captcha. Enjoy collecting satoshi with Crissy's faucet, and take an opportunity to explore the other features of our site!
