In 2018, it seems like everyone has heard of Bitcoin and how the cryptocurrency apparently saved 50 Cent from bankruptcy earlier this year, but where did they come from? Where are they going and what does it all mean for the future? Started by a controversial and somewhat elusive programmer, Bitcoin entered existence in 2008 and changed the global financial landscape as we know it. We work with a lot of cryptocurrency clients, whether in the forex sector or in the crypto-betting industry. So we wanted to look back at how it all started and what we can expect in the coming years.
All in all, cryptocurrencies are very much here to stay, regardless of how much their worth and reliability fluctuates. We’re not sure if we will one day see a global currency replacing the local tenders we’re familiar with now, but the advancements in technology and blockchain protocols make it more and more possible.
