Bitcoin Price. Bitcoin is an increasingly popular cryptocurrency that utilizes blockchain technology to facilitate transactions. Basically, a user obtains a Bitcoin wallet that can be used for storing bitcoins and both sending and receiving of payments.
A Bitcoin wallet can be a lot safer than a bank account. Cypriots learnt this the hard way when their savings were confiscated in early 2013. This event was reported as causing a price surge, as savers rethought the relative risks of banks versus Bitcoin.. The next domino to fall was Greece, where strict capital controls were imposed in 2015.
The bitcoin price chart slammed down like a Stark on a Bolton, today, but readers are being encouraged to take heart from the healthy correction and well-deserved profit-taking. This is the natural behavior of markets, and after a much need pullback greater things lie ahead for the bitcoin price chart and for Bitcoin at large.
