dietbitcoin is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system. Dietbitcoin is a hard fork of the Bitcoin main network, which took effect on February 5, 2018. As a result, the bitcoin ledger called the blockchain and the cryptocurrency split in two. It is a decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central bank or single administrator. The network is peer-to-peer and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary.These transactions are verified by network nodes through the use of cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. dietbitcoin was launched in March, 2018 by Roberto Escobar, and Olof K. Gustafsson.[8]

dietbitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services.
