Bitcoin turns 10: Test yourself with 17 questions


The world’s most valuable cryptocurrency is a decade old this week – and we’re kicking off a week of features to celebrate the anniversary with a quiz.

Its value would peak above $300 billion – more than Visa. But what else do you know about Bitcoin?

Take our quiz below to see how much of a Bitcoin buff you are.
