What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin (BTC) is the parent of all other cryptocurrencies. It is a decentralised digital currency that was the first to use blockchain technology to reinvent the concept of financial transactions. It appeared in 2009 and was supposedly created by a mysterious figure or cabal called Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin was designed to improve financial transactions compared to traditional methods by increasing transaction speeds, lowering transaction fees and more. Read more

Unlike traditional currencies like fiat, Bitcoin operates on decentralised authority. In other words, it's unregulated by any government body or any individual. It's also a payment method; users can exchange Bitcoin for certain goods or services, just like fiat currencies. Other factions consider BTC to be too volatile and, therefore, not conducive to being a replacement for fiat currencies. BTC is the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation and is often considered to be the most influential digital currency in the crypto market.

Bitcoin price history

In 2009, when Bitcoin first appeared, it traded freely among its early adopters, and its value as a commodity was generally accepted to be $0. It had no real commercial value at the time, and its blockchain technology was still nascent. One year later, the first Bitcoin exchange formed. 10,000 BTC was given in exchange for two pizzas. The negotiation was said to have been concluded by two early adopters on the Bitcoin forum. BTC price history today has been a series of ups and downs, but the value of the asset has steadily increased over the years. In 2017, Bitcoin had its then-all-time high of over $19,000, but, following the bull run in 2021, it reached over $65,000 per coin.

Bitcoin price prediction

Bitcoin is more volatile than fiat currencies and most other non-crypto assets and is widely accepted to be a tradeable commodity due to its volatility. Like most investment options, BTC has a tendency to rise. With increasingly positive market sentiment towards cryptocurrencies in general, BTC's future price is expected to go even higher.
