The cryptocurrency Bitcoin BTC - info and rate

Bitcoin was created in 2009. It is currently the largest cryptocurrency based on market capitalisation. There are no physical coins. Bitcoins only exist digitally.

According to Bitcoin News: Bank of America sees no good reason to own Bitcoin other than "sheer price appreciation". The firm's strategists found that the cryptocurrency's "inflation hedging benefits are not particularly obvious." Bank of America also claims that Bitcoin offers no diversification benefits and is "impractical as an asset store or payment mechanism."

The price for this chart is provided by Coinbase.

Risk note: Cryptocurrencies are very volatile. You should carefully consider whether they are the right investment for you.
