It’s raining gold, and I mean it! Bitcoin prices in the last one year have only headed north. Today, the price of 1 BTC is equivalent to more than USD 2000. In the last five months since January 2017, the value of BTC has doubled in absolute value when compared to the dollar. For those who are still new to this: Cryptocurrencies are a kind of money, so long as people ascribe value to them and use them to pay for things.
The main benefit is the blockchain (aka distributed ledger) on which they’re based. Blockchains let you transact without needing the blessing of a third party or banker middleman. Bitcoin is a kind of cryptocurrency that uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Although other cryptocurrencies have come before, Bitcoin is the first decentralised cryptocurrency – Its reputation has spawned copies and evolution in the space. Bitcoin was the first successful implementation of a blockchain, and it’s optimised almost entirely for transferring value securely over the Internet. People like to call it “digital gold.”
