Bitcoin (BTC) is a digital currency, which is used and distributed electronically. Bitcoin is a decentralised peer-to-peer network. No single institution or person controls it. Bitcoins can't be printed and their amount is very limited - only 21 mln Bitcoins can ever be created.
Bitcoin was first introduced as an open-source software by an anonymous programmer, or a group of programmers, under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009. There has been a lot of rumours about the real identity of BTC's creator, however all of the people mentioned in those rumours have publicly denied being Nakamoto.
