{{Special characters}} Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment system introduced as open source software in 2009 by developer Satoshi Nakamoto. The digital currency created and used in the system is alternatively referred to as a virtual currency, electronic money, or a cryptocurrency although it does not meet the generally recognized definition of money. The Bitcoin system is not controlled by a single entity, like a central bank, which has led the US Treasury to call it a decentralized currency. Bitcoins are created as a reward for payment processing work in which users who offer their computing power verify and record payments into a public ledger. Called mining, individuals engage in this activity in exchange for transaction fees and newly minted bitcoins. Users can buy, send, and receive bitcoins electronically for a nominal fee using wallet software on a personal computer, mobile device, or a web application. Bitcoins can be obtained by mining or in exchange for products, services, or other currencies. Bitcoin as a form of payment for products and services has seen growth, and merchants have an incentive to accept the currency because transaction fees are lower than the 2–3% typically imposed by credit card processors. The European Banking Authority has warned that Bitcoin lacks consumer protections. Bitcoins can be stolen and chargebacks are impossible. Commercial use of Bitcoin is currently small compared to its use by speculators, which has fueled price volatility. Bitcoin has been a subject of scrutiny amid concerns that it can be used for illegal activities. In October 2013 the US FBI shut down the Silk Road online black market and seized 144,000 bitcoins worth US$28.5 million at the time. The US is considered Bitcoin-friendly compared to other governments, however. In China new rules restrict bitcoin exchange for local currency. As of 2014, there has been no uniform convention of bitcoin orthography,whether or when to use lowercase b versus capital B. In February 2014, the WSJ advised its writers in an internal memo to use lowercase b in all cases. A Chronicle of Higher Education Blog recommended the same without sources or reasons Besides the Washington Post no other newspapers have followed suit. This article will use lowercase b in all instances.
