DescriptionAs the first digital currency to be introduced publicly—not to mention it existed without competition for over two years—Bitcoin is currently the most easily recognized cryptocurrency in the world. Since they were the first, many other currencies have adopted Bitcoin's methods, such as the mining process for generating new coins and establishing a mintage cap—this means once a certain number of coins is minted, there will be no more created. Though investor numbers are a closely-guarded secret, it's projected that there will be over one million people invested in Bitcoin by the end of 2014—and some industry insiders believe that goal will be reached even sooner.
