Welcome to Bitcoin and Cryptos!
THE RISE OF BITCOIN
Back in 2011, Bitcoin was worth less than 1 dollar and was dismissed as a niche interest of a few techno-geeks that would never catch on.
Fast forward a few years and now Bitcoin is worth thousands of dollars and is entering the mainstream. Major companies like Subway, Microsoft, Expedia and Whole Foods accept it as a form of payment. Japan has even declared Bitcoin as legal tender!
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies offer major benefits over traditional forms of currency. Bitcoin is not controlled by any bank, government or corporation and is therefore not open to manipulation. It allows a direct transaction between two people or organisations without a third party like a bank, Western Union or Paypal. That means there are no fees to pay and transactions are much faster, particularly for international transactions. It also allows for greater privacy.
Some people see Bitcoin as the “new gold” – a potential stable store of value against which other currencies could be valued. We have not reached that stage yet – but that is not to say it couldn’t happen at some point in the future.
