Who Invented Cryptocurrency?

Bitcoin, and the blockchain technology behind it, was first proposed by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 in a document known as the Bitcoin White Paper. The creators have remained largely anonymous as the usage of Bitcoin has spread. Ethereum was created by Vitalik Buterin along with his co-founders Joseph Lubin and Anthony Diiorio. These are two popular blockchains that are used to trade many other coins and digital assets.
