From Wikipedia: Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system. It is the first decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central bank or single administrator. The network is peer-to-peer and transactions take place between users directly through the use of cryptography, without an intermediary. These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in an immutable public distributed ledger called a blockchain.
What does this mean?
Bitcoin is the world’s first decentralized currency that can be used nearly instantly to send value anywhere in the world. The system behind it is mathematically verified and view-able by the public. There are no companies or nations involved in the distribution of the currency (open-source). The Bitcoins are secured with cryptography and private/public keys to prevent double-spending, something which has never been successfully developed until now. Interested in the technical side?

Anyone can use Bitcoin! You simply need a Bitcoin wallet, usually an app on your phone, and you can start receiving Bitcoins immediately.
