Why the Bitcoin Blockchain Size is Growing
The Bitcoin blockchain size is growing because new transactions are being added to the blockchain. Bitcoin is a digital asset and a payment system invented by Satoshi Nakamoto. Transactions are verified by network nodes through cryptography and recorded into a public dispersed ledger called a blockchain. Bitcoin is unique in that there are a finite number of them: 21 million. As more people use Bitcoin, the network congestion will increase, requiring more transactions to be added to the blockchain.
