Why should I invest in Bitcoin?

Part ten of Bitcoin Basics: The phenomenon explained in plain english

Written by Bryan Smith Published on

Bitcoin represents an exciting step for the future of currency.

Up until this point, peer-to-peer transactions have traditionally seen parties exchange goods, precious materials, or fiat currency that is regulated and controlled by a central bank and is subject to peaks and valleys in value that are determined by geographic and political concerns.

For the first time, bitcoin offers a concrete method for transacting parties around the world to exchange value without the interference of a regulator without sizeable delay.

Bitcoin is appealing not only for the fact that it represents an enticing means to pay others for goods or services rendered, but also for the fact that it represents an area of intense interest and focus for investors.

Bitcoin’s continual price gains have been fuelled by worldwide interest in the cryptocurrency, and though one’s losses can easily outstrip one’s gains, investing in bitcoin further represents a promising investment vehicle through which one can not only be part of the future of currency, but further accrue wealth while doing so.

Fundamentally, bitcoin represents a break in a global paradigm that has existed for years – and it is one that has excited investors, pundits, and onlookers alike. While the future remains in flux – as bubble concerns, international regulations, and new laws mount – bitcoin remains an intensely exciting new development that could well change the world as we know it.
