Bitcoin was the first of what is now known as cryptocurrency. It is a currency that works without the use of a centralized bank or administrator instead it works on through a process known as blockchain which is a ledger spread among the computers with in the bitcoin network.

The domain Bitcoin.org was first registered in august 2008, and information about the yet to be released bitcoin was posted on a cryptography mailing list in november of that year. Bitcoin was first released in 2009 as an open source software by an unknown person or group of people going of people going by the name Satoshi Nakamoto. The bitcoin has three levels. First of the normal Bitcoin which has a fluctuation value, next is the millibitcoin which is worth 1/1000 of one bitcoin. And final the Satoshi is the lowest level of bitcoin and is worth ​1 ⁄ 100000000 of a bite coin. Satoshi’s goal was to create a currency system that was decentralized in an attempt to make tranzactions and storage of bitcoin safer, and he did this via the above mentioned blockchain which a decentralized ledger that stores its information spread amount all the computers that have made bitcoin transactions(these computers are known as nodes)

As time went on Bitcoin became more and more popular as more people either bought or mined Bitcoin.(Mining is a process in which you pass code for Bitcoin back through the inscription system to see if you find a new coin. If you do you keep it) As more people bought and mined Bitcoin the price rose exponentially until it peaked around 20,000 us dollars to one bitcoin.

“When bitcoin currency is converted from currency into cash, that interface has to remain under some regulatory safeguards. I think the fact that within the bitcoin universe an algorithm replaces the function of the goverment …[that] is actually pretty cool Al Gore

Satoshi’s original idea of decentralized currency system has only somewhat come to fruition. Due to high transaction fees and long waits on transactions there are not many businesses that accept Bitcoin as payment, and therefore it is very difficult to use Bitcoin as a currency. Due to this most people use bitcoin as an investment, they treat it like a stock. Many people buy Bitcoin while it is at a lower price and then they sell at a higher price for a profit like they would do with a stock on the stock market. This has become the most popular use for bitcoin and is the way that Bitcoin can help you the most. Treating Bitcoin like a stock or an investment is the best use of Bitcoin for you while you can still use it as a currency keep transaction fees and limited users will make things more difficult for you. That's why it it best that you treat it like a stock.

Bitcoin has peaked and is currently on the way down in the market scene it is low I would currently recommended purchasing while the price is lower. I believe that the chances are high that Bitcoin will eventually start rising in the market.My recommendation would be wait until Bitcoin starts to go back up buy then and then sell when it is high again.
