Bitcoin – The Digital Currency of The Future

Bitcoin was created in 2009 as an anonymous and secure way of exchanging money on the internet. It is an electronic currency that is completely decentralized - it isn’t backed by a government or other central authority – and is minted and exchanged entirely within a massive network of users. Anyone with an internet connection can send and receive Bitcoins directly and privately with no transaction fees.

The Science of Bitcoin

The first cryptocurrency to bring in more investors and traders than its rivals, possibly due to its temperament of having a lot of ups and downs in the market which make it attractive to traders. Volatility is always a good sign when trading on the online markets as it offers traders new strategies and the possibilities to profit when markets are at their most unpredictable.

Media hype is one of the main reasons for the Bitcoin to have had it increase and then when media hype is lower so is the market of the Bitcoin. As history shows, the Bitcoin gains new investors and spectators as it enters a new peak, and because this cryptocurrency is so globally accessible and easy to trade it attracts the masses, therein spells out the value of the Bitcoin.

New Bitcoins are created with highly time-intensive computer-based algorithms which limits the rate at which they enter the market. The total amount of Bitcoins that will ever be issued is 21 million – making it a finite commodity like gold or oil.

Rise of Bitcoin

The founder of Bitcoin is Satoshi Nakamoto. From late 2008 when he had launched Bitcoin, a lot of his peers caught on to his concept and understood the value of such an asset and further assisted in developing the cryptocurrency. 

October 2009, was the first ever Bitcoin exchange and back then was listed at 1,309 Bitcoins at $1.00, very cheap and for that year continued to trade for a low price, at a fraction of a cent.

In early 2010, the currency was gaining momentum, and so the distribution of the Bitcoin started to increase along with its demand, by November of that year 4 million Bitcoins had been ‘mined’.

And so the rise of the Bitcoin began…
