Said to be the Gold standard of digital assets, because most other cryptocurrencies are priced in BTC. Bitcoin is well known for being the first cryptocurrency created in 2009 by a person using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. To this day, no one really knows who created the digital asset. But due to its open source code and management, it has become the currency of the people.
This digital asset is created by Proof of Work (POW), meaning specialised computers solving hash codes known as miners. They complete blocks by solving complex math problems, to unlock more Bitcoin (BTC) into the ecosystem. The miners also help transactions, as these are also incorporated into the blocks. This has created a very nice symbiotic relationship with users and miners.
As of the time of writing this, Bitcoin has a total circulating supply of 18,012,537 BTC with a total supply of 21,000,000 BTC that will ever exist. However the more miners that join up to pools to unlock bitcoin faster, only makes the current split less for every miner. The final bitcoin will not be unlocked until the year 2145, so no matter what, there will be mining until then. Plus after that point, miners would be paid for just hashing blocks for transactions, and be paid the fees users pay to send the cryptocurrency around to wallets.
