Whatever terms you might use call it, Bitcoin first appeared in a paper by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. It was released as an open-source code project in 2009, and implemented soon after. The identity of Nakamoto and the exact origins of Bitcoin remain mysterious, even as bitcoin has emerged as a major global currency with active trading markets, exchanges, payment-processing systems, and other services and intermediaries. Bitcoin is beginning to fall under government supervision, though different countries have been faster to move on the issue.
