Bitcoin is a decentralized system of the eponymous cryptocurrency based on blockchain technology, which can be" mined" (issued) by any user participating in the system. To do this, you need to create new system blocks.
The system's concept was published in November 2008 by its author (possibly a team of authors) under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.
