Bitcoin was developed and introduced in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto using open-source software. It was the first crypto currency available to the world using blockchain technology to securely track and process each transaction. Bitcoin offered something that no other form of currency available at the time could: anonymity.
Anonymity, it seems, was built into crypto currency by its very developer. Satoshi Nakamoto is the name associated with the development and release of Bitcoin, but it is widely accepted that this is a false name used by one or more individuals as a shield for real identities. Bitcoin transactions are not processed or tracked by central banks and have no government backing.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Silver Proof Crypto Commemorative Bitcoin Round is the image of the crypto currency’s symbol. The Bitcoin symbol is very similar to that of the US dollar (USD) and uses a capital “B” with two vertical lines struck through it.
The reverse face of 1 oz Silver Proof Crypto Commemorative Bitcoin Round has a shared design element found on all of the releases in this collection. The imagery on this side is meant to reflect the appearance of computer networks and coding, a nod to the all-virtual existence of crypto currencies.
These 1 oz Silver Proof Crypto Commemorative Bitcoin Rounds are available to you with individual protective blister cards. Each of the rounds in this Blockchain Mint collection features a unique serial number and comes with a QR code to access certificate information. Proof silver rounds have frosted design elements with mirrored background fields.
