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.
On Wednesday 31st October 2008 a paper published by Satoshi Nakamoto claimed to offer an alternative to the traditional banking system: ‘Bitcoin : A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System’.
