Bitcoin Core is the software behind Bitcoin. It is a direct descendant from the original Bitcoin source code released by Satoshi Nakamoto one decade ago.

Following Bitcoin's main tenet that "source code is the law", Bitcoin Core code establishes the regulations for all things related to Bitcoin.

The maximum BTC supply of 21 million coins, the 10 minute block interval, the block rewards and every other aspect of Bitcoin are coded into Bitcoin Core.

Changes to Bitcoin Core are only made after a BIP process is completed by the community. This system has been successful for the past 10 years and continues to preserve Bitcoin's integrity.

Almost every first generation cryptocurrency was a fork off Bitcoin Core source code. Litecoin, Dogecoin, Reddcoin and tens of others fit in this category.

Browse the Bitcoin Core source code.
