What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a virtual currency in which a record of transactions is maintained and new units of currency are generated by the computational solution of mathematical problems, and which operates independently of a central bank.

Just like USD has a symbol bitcoin also has a symbol ₿. 

Bitcoin was developed by a mysterious person called Satoshi Nakamoto. The concept of Bitcoin came into existence when Satoshi Nakamoto has published a research paper on bitcoin with name Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.

Satoshi also introduced the source code of bitcoin in January 2019 on GitHub

How Bitcoin Works?

Bitcoin is a P2P cryptocurrency which works on proof-of-work method. It is a transferring of value between two wallets. when a person sends money from one wallet to another it sends the data like sender-receiver wallet address signature with the transaction which is confirmed by the sender. The transaction with details sends to the network for other miners to verify it. When a transaction is confirmed by multiple miners then it is confirmed and bitcoin is transferred to the receiver. It takes about 10-20 minute for a transaction to complete because each block is completed every 10 minutes.

This is not complete information about how bitcoin work but I tried to make it in simplest form.


Is bitcoin safe to invest?

No investment is safe to be done other than your banks because the current value of any investment is not always positive. Investments like Bonds, FD, bank account are considered the safest. That too because the bank takes gives assurance for interest. Whereas investment in Real Estate, Stocks, Mutual funds, Cryptocurrencies are way riskier. But they can also provide much more return as per the risk.

FD’s, Banks gives interest around 4-6% per annum. Whereas a mutual fund has an annual return of 15%+ in the long term.

Same is with bitcoin it is a lot volatile than mutual fund but in the last 10 years has shown much more potential in returns.

Nifty has given 250% interest in last 10 year from 2009 till 2019. But bitcoin has in 2010 was at $0.05 per bitcoin and it has touched $19000


If you invested $100 in 2010 in bitcoin you would get 2000 bitcoins.

The high price of bitcoin was $38,000,000 this is 100% highest in any investment.

Current price of bitcoin is $5000 this means your $100 will become $10,000,000.

This does not include trading in bitcoin and forks. In 2017 Bitcoin had hard fork means you have also got 1 BCH and BCD coin for every bitcoin you hold. Then in 2018 BCH again forked and you got 1 BCHSV and BCHABC for each BCH you hold.

Hope how much you have earned and the next prediction is over $50,000.

John McAfee

When I predicted Bitcoin at $500,000 by the end of 2020, it used a model that predicted $5,000 at the end of 2017. BTC has accelerated much faster than my model assumptions. I now predict Bircoin at $1 million by the end of 2020. I will still eat my dick if wrong.

Anthony Colón Jr, Founder and CEO of Bitcoin Air

Bitcoin will reach “$5400-$6000 by years end, with a slow quiet creep to $8000-$9000 over 2019 and a full year of Bull Run for 2020 up to $25,000-$30,000 BTC.”

Tim Draper – Venture Capitalist

Tim Draper has predicted a $250,000 BTC by 2022. Later He had made new prediction to reach bitcoin $25000 in 2019 & 2020. Which is 5 Times higher then current price.
