The initial cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC), was created in 2009 by someone using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. BTC is based on a blockchain, which is a distributed ledger maintained by a network of thousands of computers, as is the case with other cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin is protected against fraudsters thanks to a method known as proof of work, which requires solving a cryptographic problem.
Bitcoin’s value has soared since it became a household brand and became widely accepted. You could get Bitcoin for around $9,500 in May of 2020. The price of a single Bitcoin reached above $44,000 on March 1st, 2022. That is an increase of almost 470%.
With a 24-hour trading volume of $32,831,076,747 USD, the live Bitcoin price is now $46,577.07 USD. In the previous 24 hours, Bitcoin has lost 1.01 percent of its value. Live market capital of $884,918,365,904 USD places CoinMarketCap at the top of the rankings. There are a total of 18,999,012 Bitcoins in circulation, with a maximum supply of 21,000,000 Bitcoins.
Bitcoins, like currency or credit cards, are held in a digital wallet, much like cash or credit cards. Hardware or web-based digital wallets are also available. The private keys and addresses needed to get access to the wallet can be printed out and stored in a safe place, such as on a computer desktop or a mobile device.
In addition to being a cryptocurrency and a blockchain platform, Ethereum’s potential uses, such as so-called smart contracts that automatically execute when conditions are fulfilled and non-fungible tokens, have made it a popular choice for programmers (NFTs).
Ethereum, too, has seen a phenomenal rise in popularity. From April 2016 to the start of March 2022, the price increased by over 27,000 percent, from roughly $11 to over $3,000.
Users can buy ETH online via a number of active exchanges. You can now also buy ETH through mainstream brokerage platforms like Robinhood or Paypal.

A stable coin, Tether is supported by fiat currencies such as the US dollar and the euro, and so theoretically maintains a value equal to one of those denominations. That’s why Tether is called a stablecoin. As a result, investors who are scared of the severe volatility of other cryptocurrencies choose Tether because of its supposedly more stable value.
To trade and pay fees on Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, you may use the Binance Coin, which is a sort of cryptocurrency.
