Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Display on Level 4

The Bitcoin big bang : how alternative currencies are about to change the world - Brian Kelly

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system. It is the first decentralised digital currency, as the system works without a central bank or single administrator.

How bitcoin works: A transaction is a transfer of value between Bitcoin wallets that gets included in the block chain. Bitcoin wallets keep a secret piece of data called a private key or seed, which is used to sign transactions, providing a mathematical proof that they have come from the owner of the wallet.

Recently bitcoin price has dramatically risen. So there are lots of discussion about bitcoin and cryptocurrency. So we chose three streaming videos prepared by Bloomberg.
