Bitcoin is an innovative payment network and a new kind of money. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous paymentFreely inspired by BitcoinJ (and it s .net port, that doesn t work without modifications, BitcoinSharp), the goal is to make the library (in order of priority) easier to use, more stable, faster and more complete, thanks to a better architectural design and usage of specific .net APIs. The goal is to have the best Bitcoin library against all languages, which shouldn t be that difficult given small amount of libraries available. This project is under development and can t be used yet Developers are always welcome! :) Progression of the project Importation of BitcoinJ core objects (Block, BlockChain, Message, etc.) + basic refactoring Testing to make things working + unit testing to make sure that things will continue to work Increased refactoring for better architecture and performance improvements Improving stability (dealing with exceptions, etc.) Implementation of newAll Departments Amazon Home Services Amazon Instant Video Appliances Apps & Games Arts, Crafts & Sewing Automotive Baby Beauty Books CDs & Vinyl Cell Phones & Accessories Clothing, Shoes & Jewelry Women Men Girls Boys Baby Collectibles & Fine Art Computers Credit and Payment Cards Digital Music Electronics Gift Cards Grocery & Gourmet Food Health & Personal Care Home & Kitchen Industrial & Scientific Kindle Store Luggage & Travel Gear Luxury Beauty Magazine Subscriptions Movies & TV Musical Instruments Office Products Patio, Lawn & Garden Pet Supplies Prime Pantry Software Sports & Outdoors Tools & Home Improvement Toys & Games Video GamesBitcoin[note 5] is a payment system invented by Satoshi Nakamoto,[note 6] who published the invention in 2008 and released it as open-source software in 2009. The system is peer-to-peer; users can transact directly without needing an intermediary.:4 Transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called the block chain. The ledger uses its own unit of account, also called bitcoin.[note 7] The system works without a central repository or single administrator, which has led the US Treasury to categorize it as a decentralized virtual currency. Bitcoin is often called the first cryptocurrency, although prior systems existed.[note 8] Bitcoin is more correctly described as the first decentralized digital currency. It is the largest of its kind in terms of total market value. Bitcoins are created as a reward for payment processing work in which users offer their computing power to verify and record payments into the public ledger. This activity is calledDEFINITION of Bitcoin Bitcoin is a digital currency created in 2009. It follows the ideas set out in a white paper by the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto, whose true .

Topics covered include whether bitcoins are recognized as legal tender, the possibility of negative impacts on the national currency, concerns about fraud, and how transactions using the Bitcoin system are viewed by tax authorities. Of those countries surveyed, only a very few, notably China and Brazil, have specific regulations applicable to bitcoin use. There is widespread concern about the Bitcoin system’s possible impact on national currencies, its potential for criminal misuse, and the implications of its use for taxation. Overall, the findings of this report reveal that the debate over how to deal with this new virtual currency is still in its infancy. January 2014 Report, (PDF, 426KB) (Updates and.
