    Categories: Blockchain

    Refers to the problem with digital money whereby transactions can be copied and spent twice. Bitcoin solves this problem with the use of a peer-to-peer network that maintains a universal ledger that is chronologically ordered since the begining of its operation in 2009. Once a bitcoin transaction is confirmed, it is virtually impossible to double spend it.
