What is Bitcoin and how can I use it?

Bitcoin is a digital currency made for the internet. Bitcoins are held in a virtual "wallet," which is simply an account set up on a secure third-party website, and the wallets are assigned unique and anonymous ID numbers that are used to send or receive Bitcoin payments. Bitcoin is extremely secure for both the sender and the receiver and eliminates fraud risk, and it's a particularly good option for international customers.
