Cryptocurrency is a form of digital money that can be used as a means of exchange online. Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency to be created in the year 2010.
It rapidly grew in value from just $0.003 in 2010 to it highest price of $19,783.06 by December 2017. To put that in naira perspective, let assume that dollar to naira exchange rate is ₦360 (though, the rate was far less than ₦360 in 2010), it means, the price moved from just ₦1.08 in 2010 to ₦7,121,901.60 (₦7.1 million) in just 7 years.
It means, if you managed to just invest only ₦1.08 in 2010, by 2017, you would have about ₦7.1million in your bank account. This is never manipulative or hype value. You can check bitcoin chart to see the records for yourself.
Now, just imagine... in five seconds, what your financial worth would be today if you were fortunate to have invested $100 (₦36,000.00) in bitcoin in 2010. Try and get a seat to comprehend what your worth will be by now.
