From google:

A software developer called Satoshi Nakamoto proposed bitcoin, which was an electronic payment system based on mathematical proof. The idea was to produce a currency independent of any central authority, transferable electronically, more or less instantly, with very low transaction fees.

It is not really a pyramid scheme.

Bitcoin is used as a form of gambling where buyers hope to sell them for more than they paid. Its value fluctuates daily as its novelty and popularity changes, Unlike stock where a business is earning money or a bond that earns interest money, there is no reason to expect Bitcoin make money for you.

Not a pyramid scheme, but not anything like a secure investment either. Is skyrocketing right now mainly due to hype.

No, it's not. A pyramid scheme requires investors buy in and then those investors to bring other investors to buy in in order to earn from their investment. Current Bitcoin owners would be receiving commissions or dividends from the sale of Bitcoins to new buyers. That's not at all how it works. Rather, Bitcoin trades somewhat like a commodity, but in actuality, it is a fiat currency. The US dollar, ever since going off the gold standard, has been a fiat currency. Bitcoin and Bitcoin's value operate under the exact same principles as the US dollar and the US dollar's value.

I bought some yesterday, and some lite coin, the litecoin went down, by four or five dollars, and I was told by my friend to buy more of that because it was cheap, but I had to have some bitcoin, and that went up twenty percent in the last twenty four hours. Hey I understand it's a way for drug dealers to launder money, but that's what half a trillion a year? I'm hoping it goes ten or a hundred times again before it crashes. It went a million times.
