Bitcoin: digital crypto-currency

It’s something that makes the world go round, but it doesn’t really exist. In fact, if we all stopped believing in it, it would have no use at all! It is, of course, money. But not just any money, in this 6 minute English, we’ll be talking about the infamous Bitcoin. A digital crypto-currency. Is it the same as ‘real’ money? Can it be trusted? Is it safe? Dan and Neil discuss the issue and teach you six items of vocabulary.

This week’s question:

When was the Bitcoin crypto-currency first created?

a) 2004

b) 2009

c) 2013
