The first bitcoin transaction turned 13 years old
13 years ago, in January 2009, the first bitcoin transaction was made. It was a transfer of 10 BTC from the creator of the first currency, Satoshi Nakamoto, to cryptographer Hal Finney. The cryptographer played a huge role in bitcoin's history, and according to one version, he was even its developer.
