Bitcoin is a digital currency, a protocol, and a software that enables instant peer-to-peer transactions and worldwide payments for almost no processing fees. Bitcoin uses technology to operate with no central authority; managing transactions and bitcoin issuance is carried out collectively by the network. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that cannot be covered by any previous payment systems. The software is a community-driven, free, open-source project released under the MIT license.
