Bitcoin was created as an answer to the financial crisis in 2008 by an unknown person or group known as Satoshi Nakamoto.
Nearly a decade later, it entered the public conscious when in late 2017, it was on the front page of the Wall Street Journal nearly everyday by growing from $3K~ to $20K~ in a matter of weeks. Then it all crashed…
We are now experiencing the second Bitcoin boom cycle with BTC currently around $30K. Many people think it will crash to zero. Others think they missed the boat. The truth is, nobody knows.
Bitcoin could go to zero. Or it could become the global reserve currency. If it does become the global reserve currency and it goes up around 20X in value over the coming decade (assuming it matches the market cap of Gold which is $9T), you are going to wish you allocated some of your portfolio to this scarce asset.
