Bitcoin - Open source P2P money
http://bitcoin.org/en/
Bitcoin is an innovative payment network and a new kind of money.
Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system.

Bitcoin (Wikipedia)

Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment network and digital currency based on an open source protocol, which makes use of a public transaction log.
Bitcoin was introduced in 2009 by pseudonymous developer Satoshi Nakamoto. It is called a cryptocurrency because it uses public-key cryptography.
When paying with bitcoin, there is no exchange of digital notes or tokens between buyer and seller. Instead, the buyer requests an update to a public transaction log, the blockchain.
This master list of all transactions shows who owns what bitcoins currently and in the past and is maintained by a decentralized network that verifies and timestamps payments. The operators of this network, known as "miners", are rewarded with transaction fees and newly minted bitcoins.

Cryptocurrency (Wikipedia)

A cryptocurrency is a digital medium of exchange.
The first cryptocurrency to begin trading was Bitcoin in 2009, since then numerous cryptocurrencies have become available.
Cryptocurrencies are at bottom specifications regarding the use of currency which seek to incorporate principles of cryptography to implement a distributed, decentralized and secure information economy.
When comparing cryptocurrencies to fiat money, the most notable difference is in how no group or individual may accelerate, stunt or in any other way significantly abuse the production of money, instead only a certain amount of cryptocurrency is produced by the entire cryptocurrency system collectively, at a rate which is bounded by a value both prior defined and publicly known.
