Bitcoin has been on the media for a long time but it’s possible to come across a person who is not familiar with it. This crypto currency is autonomous from the traditional banking that people have come to know. There are many crypto currencies that are in circulation but Bitcoin has made its mark as its considered to be the best known in the world. Bitcoin transactions are very secure because computer networks have to solve very complex mathematical functions so as to verify a transaction and record it, every bitcoin transition that ever took place goes down in record hence fraud is unheard of here.
Many investments are acted by government policies but the beauty of Bitcoin is that it’s not subject to any authority at all , no bank controls its supply. The number of new Bitcoin being mined has gone down as the number of units is limited to just twenty one million , low inflation is not something to worry a Bitcoin investor. This cryptocurrency has changed the lives of people especially in its initial stages of introduction, their stories will blow your mind. In the early days of its inception buying a bitcoin cost you pennies but today you have to part with over six thousand dollars for the same.
Erik Finman is one of the youngest Bitcoin millionaires after he took one thousand dollars his grandmother offered and invested in the block chain technology, two years later the value would appreciate to one hundred thousand dollars. The young man later dropped out of school to develop his own company that he sold for three hundred Bitcoins. Another amazing story is that of one Kristoffer Koch who invested twenty seven dollars in Bitcoin that would later be worth eight hundred and eighty six thousand dollars, the funny thing is he completely forgot about his investments until he saw Bitcoin on the news later on.
The success stories are fun top discover but there are people who have lost on Bitcoin too. One of the loss stories is that of Jered Kenna who was an early adopter of Bitcoin, he bought the coins when they cost twenty cents per coin, however hackers got to his email and got access to his wallet and erased his computer taking with them 800 coins. Another mind blowing loss story is one where a man offered ten thousand bitcoins delivery, delivery, back then the ten thousand coins were thirty dollars’ worth so it was no big deal but today maybe the man would have never made such deal because they are worth eighty two million dollars.
