Bitcoin is a digital currency which allows users to trade without the need of a central bank or middle man, through the use of blockchain technology. The first price of 1 Bitcoin was around $0.008 in 2008, it peaked to $19,700 per Bitcoin in January 2017. Based on those maths if you had invested $100 dollars at the start you would be worth approximately $25 billion. The price of Bitcoin is expected to rise further due to its presence as a ‘digital gold’ for many investors.
Compared to other asset classes we are still in the early stages of this revolutionary industry, therefore there is plenty of room for explosive growth.
