What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the world’s first and most well-known cryptocurrency. It is a pioneering digital currency that incorporates traditional monetary characteristics known for centuries. It serves as an increasingly accepted payment method for goods and services. Since BTC is based on blockchain technology, no central authority controls it, leading to its characterization as a decentralized currency.

A brief history of Bitcoin: who created BTC?

Bitcoin was conceived by Satoshi Nakamoto, a pseudonym for the individual or group responsible for developing the original Bitcoin network protocol. The true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto remains a mystery, with numerous speculations and theories over the years.

Nakamoto is hailed as a pioneer of blockchain technology, which laid the groundwork for many subsequent cryptocurrency projects. Although there were pre-existing concepts for a “virtual currency,” Bitcoin was the first to implement a peer-to-peer (P2P) system.

Who owns the most Bitcoin? It is believed that Nakamoto holds the largest amount of BTC, with over one million bitcoins in his wallet, positioning him among the wealthiest individuals globally.

What is bitcoin halving?

Bitcoin halving is an event that reduces the reward for mining new bitcoins by half. Miners, the individuals responsible for generating new bitcoins, achieve this by solving complex mathematical puzzles to create a new block of transactions.

Initially, the reward for mining a single block of Bitcoin was 50 BTC. However, approximately every 210 000 blocks — or roughly every four years—this reward is halved. The purpose of Bitcoin halving is to control the supply of the cryptocurrency and prevent inflation. Since the number of new coins entering circulation from mining remains constant and the reward per block is halved every 210 000 blocks, the rate at which new coins are introduced to the system gradually decreases over time.

How is the price of bitcoin calculated?

The price of Bitcoin, like other cryptocurrencies, is determined in the free market, based on supply and demand. Not being under the control of any central government or financial institution means its value is always in flux, with the market dictating its worth.

On a daily basis, the price of BTC varies on cryptocurrency exchanges, determined by the transactions between buyers and sellers. Similar to other financial markets, its price is influenced by market conditions, investment trends, the level of investor interest, and external factors.

Various tools are available for tracking cryptocurrency prices, including websites, mobile apps, and professional trading platforms that facilitate cryptocurrency trading.

Why do bitcoin price changes affect other cryptocurrencies?

Bitcoin, being the largest and most well-known cryptocurrency, often serves as the primary reference point for the value of other cryptocurrencies. The price movements of Bitcoin can significantly impact the value of alternative cryptocurrencies (altcoins).

This correlation is due to the interconnectedness of the cryptocurrency market. When investors in various cryptocurrencies notice a decline in BTC’s price, fear can lead them to sell off their holdings in other tokens as well. This reaction can cause a widespread decrease in the value of altcoins.

Conversely, when the price of Bitcoin rises, and its value increases, it often incites a sense of optimism among investors. As a result, they may invest in other cryptocurrencies, driving up demand and, consequently, their prices.

Remember, the volatility of cryptocurrency prices is natural and occurs frequently. Below, we compare the price charts of Bitcoin and Ethereum. At first glance, both charts appear nearly identical.

Why is Bitcoin so expensive?

The price of Bitcoin is influenced by several factors, including:

  • Limited supply – bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency with a cap of 21 million units, meaning no additional BTC can be created. As demand increases, so does its price, making BTC resistant to inflation unlike fiat currencies issued by central banks.
  • Growing Interest – in recent years, Bitcoin has surged in popularity among investors seeking alternative investment opportunities.
  • Commercial acceptance – BTC’s acceptance as a payment method by numerous companies, including industry giants like Microsoft and PayPal, enhances its demand and value. Notably, El Salvador has recognized Bitcoin as legal tender, further validating its real-world use.
  • Speculation – often viewed as a speculative asset, investors purchase Bitcoin hoping for rapid profits, influenced by market analysis.
  • Mining complexity – the process of mining new bitcoins, or ‘mining,’ becomes increasingly difficult and resource-intensive over time, contributing to the cryptocurrency’s rising value.

In summary, Bitcoin’s high price can be attributed to its limited supply, growing interest, broader commercial acceptance, speculative nature, and the escalating costs of mining.

Is investing in Bitcoin safe?

Bitcoin is considered a safe cryptocurrency investment. Like any currency, it has its pros and cons, and its safety largely depends on how it is stored and utilized. What is the safest way to store Bitcoin?

Technically, blockchain—the technology underpinning Bitcoin—is highly secure, leveraging cryptography and transaction verification by a network of users. This means each transaction must be confirmed by multiple network nodes, rendering it nearly impossible to falsify or alter.

While Bitcoin in Poland is not regulated by financial institutions, this leads to a potential lack of user protection against fraud or irregularities. All transactions on the blockchain are irreversible, meaning errors such as sending bitcoins to an incorrect address cannot be rectified.

Security risks, however, may emerge if an investor incorrectly executes a transaction or becomes a fraud victim. Storing Bitcoin in online wallets poses risks, including theft by hackers. Thus, opting for an offline hardware wallet, like Ledger, is advisable.

To mitigate risks, it’s essential to:

  • select highly-rated exchanges,
  • utilize secure wallets, and
  • adopt robust security practices, including strong passwords, two-factor authentication (2FA), and regular software updates.

In essence, bitcoin can be considered relatively safe, provided it is securely stored and transactions are conducted with reputable parties. Caution against suspicious offers and activities is also crucial.

The history of bitcoin’s price

The price history of Bitcoin is marked by significant volatility, characteristic of cryptocurrency markets, which are inherently more unstable than traditional financial markets.

Launched in 2009, Bitcoin saw the emergence of its first buying and selling platforms by 2010. In its early years, its price hovered around a few dollars. By 2013, however, its value surged, exceeding $1,000.

Consider if you had delved into the cryptocurrency realm in 2011, purchasing an entire Bitcoin for less than $5. Initially, Bitcoin’s price was not particularly high, and due to minor price fluctuations, you overlooked your acquisition. Over the years, Bitcoin’s price experienced rises and falls. It wasn’t until a decade later, upon reading about Bitcoin’s all-time high (ATH) in November 2021, that you remembered your Bitcoin. That very day, you sold your cryptocurrency, earning over $68,000.

In 2021, Bitcoin reached its all-time high (ATH), soaring to more than $68,000—equivalent to nearly 300,000 Polish złoty—on exchanges. This marked the highest price point in Bitcoin’s history to date.

Do you have to buy a whole bitcoin?

Contrary to what some might think, investing in Bitcoin doesn’t require purchasing a whole BTC at once. Cryptocurrencies are divisible into smaller units, facilitating transactions and everyday use.

This means you can own Bitcoin worth just a few dollars or even pennies, enabling transactions without the need for investing tens of thousands of dollars in a single Bitcoin. This divisibility is especially significant given BTC’s relatively high value compared to many other assets.
