Overview

Bitcoin was invented in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, but the true identity behind the name - or even whether it's one or more people - remains unknown. Within a little over a decade, the price of a single bitcoin had shot from six cents to over $20,000. Yet Bitcoin is only one of thousands of cryptocurrencies in circulation.

Explained is a Netflix series produced by Vox Media that examines and unpacks the complexities of the modern world. This 2018 episode narrated by Christian Slater takes a look at what cryptocurrency is, how it works, and where it's going.
