Well, the time of being misinformed is over, as Easy Crypto has you covered with information on all major cryptos, the application of this technology and an easy walkthrough on how to get involved with the exciting world of crypto.

Bitcoin is a digital currency. In many ways, it operates just like any other currency. You can use it to buy goods and services, and you can use it to store value, just like you would money in your bank account. Bitcoin is not the only cryptocurrency in this brand-spanking new digital asset class, but only the first. Since bitcoins birth in 2008, 2116 other cryptocurrencies have spawned, all with the goal of revolutionizing payments and improving accessibility, efficiency, and security in transactions.

What makes Bitcoin valuable?

The price of Bitcoin is determined by the Market; by means of supply vs demand, scarcity & utility. In Bitcoins case, it is important to understand the key differences between price & value, so I would recommend reading this short explanation here. During your experience with crypto and digital assets, It is likely you will meet many people who fatuously conjoin these two things into one, so wise up. 😉

Like gold, Bitcoin is scarce: its supply is limited. There are currently just over 16.2m Bitcoin in circulation,  and the maximum that will ever exist is capped at 21 million. This set cap is well known, making its scarcity transparent. This is a key difference between fiat (government issued cash such as NZD, USD, AUD) and true cryptocurrency: a government state can always create or destroy more money, but you can never create a new Bitcoin – apart from the process of mining crypto itself. 

To have value, Bitcoin must also be useful. Bitcoin creates utility in a number of ways.

-Like gold, Bitcoin is perfectly fungible (one Bitcoin is similar to another), it is divisible (you can pay someone a small fraction of Bitcoin, should you want to) and easily verifiable (via the Blockchain).

-Bitcoin is considerably faster than traditional payments, especially when it comes to overseas and inter-bank transactions.

-There are no intermediaries during the transaction, apart from the blockchain itself. This means you do not need to ask for permission to create an account, or to send or receive money. This also means nobody else about from the computers facilitating the trade is taking a stake for themselves.

-Bitcoin is borderless, essentially acting as the worlds first universal currency.

-Bitcoin is decentralized, meaning no one person or organization is in control. Bitcoin’s Blockchain like many other cryptos, is powered by collective self-interest, meaning its processing capability is powered by the people who are lending their computational power to the blockchain grid in return for some of their own Bitcoin.
