Bitcoin's key feature is that it is decentralized. This means the protocol itself cannot be modified without the consent of a majority of its users. This ensures the blockchain remains secure and stable, from inception up to the current day.
Bitcoin is a scarce asset as it has a fixed supply of 21 million coins. These coins are issued as rewards to miners for keeping the blockchain updated. The number of coins minted per block decreases at fixed intervals, with block rewards paid by transactions once all blocks are minted.
Bitcoin's pioneering Proof of Work mechanism ensures that the blockchain is secure. Bitcoin's protocol and the cryptography underlying it has a strong security track record.
Frequently Asked Questions
Mining creates the equivalent of a competitive lottery that makes it very difficult for anyone to consecutively add new blocks of transactions into the block chain. This protects the neutrality of the network by preventing any individual from gaining the power to block certain transactions.
It is not possible to change the Bitcoin protocol that easily. Any Bitcoin client that doesn’t comply with the same rules cannot enforce their own rules on other users. As per the current specification, double spending is not possible on the same block chain, and neither is spending bitcoins without a valid signature. Therefore, it is not possible to generate uncontrolled amounts of bitcoins out of thin air, spend other users’ funds, corrupt the network, or anything similar.
