Bitcoin has become known as the online currency of choice to gamble, buy drugs and arrange hits, but that’s not why it was originally set up. Its mysterious creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, enthused about the ability to send money around the world easily and without transaction fees, and that’s why now, five years after its creation, it’s gone from being worth a fraction of a penny to over a thousand dollars.
