What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is one of the most popular types of virtual cryptocurrencies – an internet based online currency that works independently from traditional banking. It started back in 2009 by a pseudonymous developer called Satoshi Nakamoto and has gone on to become one of the most prominent digital currencies in the world.

ABC have commissioned a pilot episode of a new sitcom called “Selfie” which will primarily feature a 22 minute long montage of unknown females taking pictures of themselves using their mobile phones.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the sitcom was inspired by “My Fair Lady” as the show “tells the story of a self-obsessed 20-something woman who is more concerned with Likes than being liked.” The TV show will be gracing screens across America in the Autumn months and joins a long line of programmes based on social media trends, many of these shows have failed rapidly so whether Selfie will join this list is yet to be seen.
