Abstract in different language: Bitcoin, first introduced in 2008, and other virtual currencies (litecoin, ripple, ethereum, dash, etc. – known as “altcoins”) are a phenomenon of the 21 st century. When speaking about bitcoins, views on cryptocurrency-related risks and benefits vary significantly. However, in this article, we will not focus on bitcoin here to illustrate how virtual currencies work. The aim of this article is to show how the borrowed Anglicism bitcoin is used in the Czech and the French languages. The purpose of the theoretical framework is to clarify concepts of neologism, Anglicism and internationalism and propose relationships among the concepts in a study. In the practical section, using the word bitcoin, we show how the loanword is used in both languages and how its integration into the language is similar. The main result of the analysis is a list of derived and compound words from the word bitcoin in Czech and French. The article deals with derived and compound words from the point of view of their quantitative evaluation using Aranea web corpora. In this article, we have shown the possibilities of their derivatives and adaptation to the given system of the language.
