Cryptocurrency is a relatively new instrument in the financial world. Compared to Forex, it has been in our lives for a much shorter time. But in terms of awareness, it is just as known as currency pairs and stocks.
Since the creation of Bitcoin in 2009, cryptocurrencies have managed to become one of the major investment vehicles, despite an erratic rise and fall in value, and although it is a volatile instrument, Bitcoin still remains a powerhouse in the crypto world.
Bitcoin is still the most widely known cryptocurrency. However, if you want to invest or trade in cryptocurrencies, there are alternatives that to Bitcoin. Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash are examples of these.
Yes, there are international and local stock exchanges where Bitcoin is traded, just as there are stock exchanges where assets such as stocks, funds and bonds are traded. You can access these platforms with Alba Brokers!
