According to the cryptocurrency comparison site
www.xcoinx.com data, Bitcoin’s value in the spring of 2016 was barely over 6.4
billion US dollars. Those, who were savvy enough to bet on rise of bitcoin’s
value, made a sizable profit, for example Bill Gates and Richard Branson. Much
more important than the increase of somebody’s assets, is the fact that
Bitcoin, as a cryptocurrency, has survived and deserves its place under the
sun. Transactions with bitcoins can be made all over the world, the only
requirements are: access to the internet and a Bitcoin account.
Bitcoin has given the world the
blockchain-technology, which has a tremendous untapped potential to turn a
whole new page in data processing and data usage.
