An electronic currency, which consists of cryptographic proofs-of-work, that can literally, verifiably, and securely transferred the over the internet from a buyer's bitcoin client (app, software) to a seller's without the aid of a mutually trusted third party (e.g., paypal or credit card bank, who traditionally collects a fee for this trust).
