From the official site:
Bitcoin is a digital currency, a protocol, and a software that enables instant peer to peer transactions, Worldwide payments, Low or zero processing fees and much more!
Bitcoin uses peer to peer technology to operate with no central authority; managing transactions and issuing Bitcoins are carried out collectively by the network. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment systems.

With its price, end March 2013 approaching $100, BitCoin is now a billion dollar market.
