The beginning of this year was characterized by a continuous fall in the price of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. At some point in time, the value of the crypto fell to $1,300. This raised concern amongst crypto enthusiasts and traders some already stating that the crypto may not live up to the year 2020.

Over a decade ago, the Bitcoin cryptocurrency (BTC) was launched and since then it has gone on to become the most valuable crypto based on market capitalization. Bitcoin is simply a decentralized crypto platform that has been developed and launched primarily for peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions. Developed by pseudonym developer Satoshi Nakamoto, the Bitcoin network seeks to offer users the opportunity to carry out fast and cheap transfers in a secure network. The Bitcoin network has been built on the blockchain technology which is basically a distributed ledger capable of storing information in a safe and permanent manner. The launch of the Bitcoin network back in 2009 has led to the development of over a thousand crypto platforms some seeking to modify how the Bitcoin network runs while others seek to revolutionize certain industries.
The first couple of years after the launch of Bitcoin (BTC) was quite tough as the value of the crypto fluctuated below the $10 mark. While most people did not actually know about Bitcoin and its many benefits, the ones who had an idea of how it works were skeptical about investing their funds in it.
Things have changed now as more people are investing in this cryptocurrency. Surprisingly, governments of some nations have shown their support for this crypto as they have come up with policies that will enable their citizens to invest and trade in this crypto. One area of Bitcoin acceptance that could be said to have experienced a remarkable growth is in the area of accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment for products and services bought. According to reports, there are over 100 online merchants currently accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment for products and services bought.
