The Virtual Currency - ‘BITCOIN’ and some interesting facts about it..
Hello everyone !!
I shall talk about one more amelioration in the fields of Technology. Today’s topic on which I shall discuss is ‘BITCOIN’.
With the digitalization of this world, many things which we came across in our daily lives has been digitalized.
Digitalization has its firm feet in the field of finance too. Let us understand its impact by an example. Earlier a person who had to deposit or send money in the bank, had to stand in a queue for a long time. Even the processes were very much complicated. So after the things became digitalized, everything became much easier where a man can even do transactions without going to the bank and everything happens with a lesser time being spent.
Bitcoin is actually digitalization of our currency.In addition to extensive transactions,banking, funding, and stock options that have become a norm online, there are Bitcoins that have been fostered.
Bitcoin is generally a virtual currency which maintains security and validity that can be exchanged globally with a unchanged value.The transactions are done online which make it more easier and serves as a standard mode of currency in transaction.
Following are few interesting facts on BITCOIN:
