What is Bitcoin

What is Bitcoin?

Tracing its birth from 2009, Bitcoin is often known as cryptocurrency, a virtual or digital currency. It is a new type of currency that was invented by an unknown person using the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto. You do not need intermediaries for the transaction to take place, which means that there is no bank.
Bitcoin has emerged as a diversion for banks and the government. Which means that government support is not available because no direct or indirect taxes are going to the government fund.
The places where people can buy or sell bitcoins are known as “Bitcoin Exchanges” using different currencies.

Bitcoin can be used for several purposes:
  • It can be used to buy goods anonymously;
  • Bitcoins are not linked to any place or country

    Is Bitcoin Legal?

Is Bitcoin Legal?

Talking about the legality of bitcoin is a controversial subject. Countries like Japan passed a bill that gave Bitcoin legal recognition, while in China the government imposed regulatory restrictions on the use of Bitcoin.

In India, for example, it is up to the government to decide whether we can treat bitcoins like a currency. But the government only has the power to issue currency. The real power is in the hands of the Reserve Bank of India to decide whether to treat Bitcoin as a currency or not. After demonetization in the country, demand for bitcoin increased. Even with the increase in demand, trade has many high risks, so it is very difficult to say whether Bitcoin is legal or not.
