The Evolution of Trade
A Welcoming Look into Cryptocurrency
Government institutions created a store of value/medium of exchange that would be simple and easier than most ways of trading goods.
The only problem with a system of exchanging goods using something as simple as paper is that there is an unlimited supply of trees, theoretically speaking. (Value will decrease over time as there is more paper produced.)
Why Use bitcoin?
There will only be 21 million Bitcoins ever created and approximately every 10 minutes there are bitcoins rewarded to mining computers for facilitating transactions and keeping a live updated "account balance ledger" of everyone's Bitcoins in the world.
The mining reward is cut in half every 4 years so as the demand grows for Bitcoin, and as the Coins that are put in circulation is diminishing, the value of a Bitcoin will increase. (Economically/Theoretically Speaking)
The value of a Bitcoin has risen 360,000% since created.
There have been as many as 100,000 Bitcoin transactions in one day and approximately 50,000 per day on average. There are already 15,000 businesses wolrd wide accepting Bitcoin for goods/services.
