Bitcoin is the first and largest cryptocurrency. To date, 18.1 million bitcoin exist and only 21 million bitcoin will ever exist.
Blockchain is a cloud based digital public ledger where bitcoin transactions are grouped together and maintained by a community of users.
Mining, the process required to secure the blockchain, verifies transactions by solving a difficult mathematical puzzle.
