Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.
Release Notes: This is a maintenance release to fix a critical bug and three security issues. All users are urged to upgrade.
