Since the days of grain merchants acting like banks through to today’s global banks, centralised organisations have evolved to allow us to trade and transact in a trusted manner.

But when financial markets crashed in 2008, giving rise to a global credit crunch, something changed. While bankers emptied out their desks, a pseudonymous individual – or group – known as Satoshi Nakamoto was busy publishing a short document which would go on to change the world.

The white paper, entitled ‘Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System,’ described a means of transacting that would do away with the need for banks and middlemen. With this new form of digital currency – or cryptocurrency – anyone, anywhere could now exchange money in a decentralised way; peer-to-peer.

The birth of bitcoin was revolutionary on two fronts; giving rise to the birth of thousands of cryptocurrencies, all with different features and benefits, and sparking waves of innovation in the infrastructure of finance.
