Its "purpose" is to be a currency that is
1) Secure (nearly impossible to counterfeit or double-spend).
2) Universal (nearly instantly available almost everywhere in the world by virtue of it being digital).
3) Immune to government interference or manipulation (generally not "issued" by any central authority).
There are other reasons for it existing, but the above are considered "main".
