You can call it a trendsetter, an innovator, a payment substitute or even a leader of cryptocurrencies. We simply like to call it ‘technology-at-its-best.’ The blockchain-based crypto coin, which was incepted over 11 years back under the pseudo name Satoshi Nakamoto, has kept the interest and enthusiasm alive till date which has only grown over the years. It has been a source of inspiration for many other altcoins now trading in the market. The crypto works on a simple peer-to-peer approach making the existence of any middlemen to complete the transaction fully irrelevantly. The digital currency has widely been accepted & adopted by many merchants and businesses, and the prices are moving in the upward direction once again.
