January 3, 2009 has marked the beginning of a new era of globalization and world interconnection: the first Bitcoin transaction1 has occurred. Satoshi Nakamoto has made what was thought to be impossible – a currency and payment system not controlled by any person or organization. We know this currency as Bitcoin and the underlying technology, that powers it, as Blockchain2.
