Cryptocurrency is bigger and better than ever before. It is estimated that there are over 100 million active Bitcoin owners worldwide. There are around 53 million traders of Bitcoin, the most prevalent of the 500+ altcoins currently available. That said, crypto is still a hugely misunderstood form of wealth management, and many who might consider investing in a cryptocurrency hesitate to do so because they neither understand how it works nor believe they’ll be able to easily spend any of the money they amass.
In these politically partisan times, it’s all the more important to invest in a currency not owned or controlled by any individual country’s government. The mining of cryptocurrency is an equal opportunities operation that doesn’t care what species of political regime you live under. In a shaky economy, cryptocurrency could prove an unusually reliable bet.
