What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is the first digital peer-2-peer decentralized "cryptocurrency".

It was created in 2009 by "Satoshi Nakamoto" (an anonymous person/group) in 2008 and officially released a year later. At first Bitcoins could only be mined and not bought. Mining is the process where computers run software and exchange computing power for Bitcoins.

What is a fork?
A fork is when a cryptocurrency splits into two, yeilding free additional currency of another type.

It occurs when a cryptocurrency’s existing code is changed, resulting in both an old and new version. While the old version of the code continues to exist and function as it did before, the new version/currency is recognized as an entirely different cryptocurrency. Forks happen at a predetermined blockchain height (block). The new currency then will be airdropped to the holders of the old currency (they will automatically receive the new currency for free). We try our best to update forkCountdown.org with all upcoming forks. We feature a live countdown to the next fork along with other important information such as a list of exchanges/wallets that support it.

How can I buy Bitcoins?
Depending on where you reside, you may purchase Bitcoins with fiat money.

Coinbase is a US based company founded in 2012 that allows purchasing of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin with cash or Credit Card.

Coinmama is another place to buy Bitcoin with Credit Card.
