In 2009, Bitcoin was created to establish a new currency. Different from other currencies that are created by central banks or banks that also verify transactions, Bitcoin is a decentralized currency that does not rely on a central agency to verify transactions or create money. It is based on the Blockchain, which consists of verified transactions and thus serves as memory. Following the idea of Bitcoin, many cryptoassets have been created in recent years to serve various purposes, forming a crypto finance ecosystem.
