Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last few months, you’ve probably heard people talk about Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies exploding in value. Since the beginning of 2017, the two largest cryptocurrencies Bitcoin and Ethereum have gained several hundred to several thousand percent in value. This summer we have seen the rise in popularity of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), similar to an IPO on the stock market. Investors have been jumping in left and right to get their stake in ICOs across a number of different industries in the cryptocurrency space. These ICOs usually try to raise tens of millions of dollars, and then see a vast rise in value after the ICOs are over.
There have been several people who have called for the death of bitcoin over the years, and its quite funny to read their articles or listen to their interviews only to see BTCs value continue to increase over time. This is an exciting space to be involved in. I believe this is just merely the start of a revolution with blockchain technology. I previously wrote a post about blockchain and the exciting future it will bring, and it now looks like the future is coming fast.
