Bitcoin is a virtual currency that has been designed to perform anonymous payments. Independently made from governments and banks.

In some payment situations, the Bitcoin can offer some benefits in terms of lower costs, speed, anonymity, etc. over traditional payment methods. However, its use can be also more risky because Bitcoin is not directly covered by laws that control the payment mediation. Weak consumer protection is also one reason because the Bitcoin has not spread further and has not been more widespread as a way of payment. The use of Bitcoin for common payments is still low, and although the future of Bitcoin is uncertain, it is an interesting innovation that worths description. Initial fear about Bitcoin and skepticism have lead to the adventure of invest in this cryptocurrency rather than in fixed-term deposits, government bonds or on the stock exchange. Although, to buy Bitcoins is still not that easy as should be today.
