Mining is the act of running and securing the Bitcoin blockchain. Miners run the Bitcoin protocol on computers (nodes) that compose the Bitcoin network. They compete to verify each new block of transaction by solving increasingly complex mathematical problems. The winner receives newly created bitcoins in reward, having therefore mined Bitcoin.


There are two main dates related to the creation of Bitcoin. The first one is 31 October 2008, when the Bitcoin white paper was first published. The second one is 3 January 2009, when the Bitcoin network came online.


Bitcoin was created by an anonymous developer or group of developers known under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, who stopped all online activity and disappeared in 2010. Nobody has ever been able to find Satoshi's real identity.


Bitcoin's value is based on two main pillars: a finite supply and an exponentially increasing difficulty to create new coins. This built-in scarcity gives Bitcoin value, in addition to its usefulness as a decentralized value transfer network. These features make Bitcoin an interesting investment opportunity and storage of value on the long term, as long as people keep using it of course. Its price being highly volatile, it is also a great asset for short-term speculators. Like any investments, it is risky and you should only invest after having carefully studied Bitcoin.


Bitcoin with an uppercase "B" refers to the name of the blockchain and the cryptocurrency in general. We use bitcoin with a lowercase "b" when talking about the unit of account, for instance "you own 2 bitcoins".

Lightning is a Layer 2 technology that allows to make bitcoin transactions off the main Bitcoin blockchain, enabling cheaper and faster transactions. Transactions can then be recorded in bulk on the main blockchain, saving this way precious network resources.


DCA (Dollar-Cost Averaging) consists in investing a fixed amount of money into Bitcoin at a fixed time interval, in order to smooth out the purchase price on the long run. For more information, read our Bitcoin DCA guide.
