Bitcoin created by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009 as a modern decentralized network of non-cash financial assets, has become a legitimate investment and payment option. Many new investors do not lose hope in the future to become millionaires or billionaires.
However, to achieve this result, it should not only be patient, but it is reasonable to invest money. You must know well the market of cryptocurrencies and the main factors that drives them.
