Bitcoin Investment

Bitcoin is emerging as solid investment through its status as a store of value. Many have escribed BTC as digital gold and with its limited supply and decentralized nature it is rapidly living up to that nature. Bitcoin investments should not be taken lightly as the asset remains very volatile with wild swings in price on choppy markets.

In its ten year history bitcoin has proven to be one of the best investments, multiplying in value over hundreds of times since its inception. In the first half of 2019 bitcoin investments outperformed traditional investments such as oil, stocks, gold, real estate and commodities by a clear margin.

There are a few things to be aware of before you make a bitcoin investment and Bitcoinist will be there to sort the digital wheat from the chaff so that you can make the most informed decision. There are several ways to invest in bitcoin, buying the asset directly through a crypto exchange is probably the easiest. Alternatives include futures contracts which do not hold BTC directly but offer a contract on the future price of the asset.
