Bitcoin Trading: Should You Invest in Bitcoin?

  1. 1. Should You Invest in Bitcoins?
  2. 2. A Big Plus • Not owned by any one bank or government! • Transfers and exchanges of Bitcoin are done directly by users and miners – this is a peer-to- peer system. This process results in much lower transaction fees.
  3. 3. Acceptance by Retailers Increasing • Retailers that accept Bitcoin as payment for goods and services on the rise, including: • • • And many more…. • Bitcoins can also be traded in a Bitcoin Exchange.
  4. 4. Overall Cap • There will be a cap of the number of Bitcoins that are mined. This number will stop at 21 million, and it is expected that this number will not be reached until around 2140. • This means that the value of Bitcoin will only increase from here on out.
  5. 5. Safety • All Bitcoin transactions are recorded in a public ledger known as a Blockchain. Any user can see this record in order to verify transactions; it is this availability or access to the ledger that helps keep the currency relatively safe. • However, there are potential pitfalls to consider.
  6. 6. Your Wallet • Once a Bitcoin transaction is verified, it cannot be stopped or refunded. In addition, if you lose your access to your electronic wallet, your funds will be lost. • This is why it is important to protect your wallet or back it up to another device.
  7. 7. Volatility • The biggest downside to investing in Bitcoin could be its volatility. The value of Bitcoin fluctuates like crazy on some days—depending on when you invested, this could be a good or bad thing. Last year the price quickly went from around $14 to $1,200 USD, but it then dropped again to $632.
  8. 8. Conclusion • Investing in Bitcoin can be a significant part of one’s investment portfolio, but knowing the possible pitfalls is a necessary step before embarking upon this strategy. • Always weigh the risks vs. potential of any investment before proceeding. • We have lots of information to share on our website—come visit!
