London, United Kingdom, January 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Many people often associate Bitcoin with gold. This is because many consider both to be a safe investment. Although they are similar in that gold and bitcoin are finite resources, they also differ in many ways, such as: B. in terms of physicality and the volatility of price. The article reveals an effort from the upcoming book Bitcoin Simplified by Naseeff Ramzi, in which the author discusses the intricacies and complexities of the mechanisms behind Bitcoin that have been attributed to its success. The book is particularly anticipated by the followers of the blog, YouTube channel, social media and the content on the website.
Bitcoin and gold are obtained equally through mining. However, mining gold is very different from mining Bitcoin. Gold is located and dug out of the ground and then forged into flames. Bitcoin is created by computers that solve complex equations. Many refer to this as “Bitcoin mining”. And although these processes are comparatively different, they have some things in common. Bitcoin is considered the best investment of the decade while gold is considered one of the safest investments.
As mentioned earlier, gold and bitcoin have limited availability. They are finite resources. The most important derivative of price and attractiveness for investors is to reduce them in order to increase the circulation and thus influence the market value. Given the continued growth and establishment of these markets, it can be seen that both gold and cryptocurrencies will continue to grow and achieve higher value for the foreseeable future. Bitcoin connects people all over the world via the internet. The blockchain model and coding behind Bitcoin use cryptography, computer science, and math to protect electronic communications and ensure that coins cannot be copied or counterfeited, just as gold cannot be copied.
Unlike gold and physical cash, Bitcoin can be instantly traded and received with no restrictions. Both gold and Bitcoin share the characteristic of finitude, which means that no individual can conjure up any more. Bitcoin market cap is over $ 154 billion (£ 120 billion). At this point, the price of Bitcoin is currently at $ 40,696 (GBP 30,000), which is an ATH (all-time high). The daily volume for Bitcoin is $ 8 billion (£ 6.2 billion) for tracked exchanges. Many believe that the market cap of bitcoins will be hundreds of trillions in the years to come. This has resulted in an exponential increase in the recent Bitcoin price due to increased purchases. Many people invest with the prospect of realizing a high return on investment within a few years. This compares with the gold market at $ 7 trillion (£ 6 trillion) and the daily market volume is estimated at around $ 109 billion (£ 85 billion) to $ 231 billion (£ 180 billion) per day.
The total amount of Bitcoin that can be mined is limited to 21 million. The coding behind Bitcoin is programmed in such a way that over time it becomes more difficult to mine Bitcoin (there is a lower reward for each math equation solved). But how much Bitcoin has already been mined? There are currently around 18.5 million bitcoins in circulation. This means that around 80% of all Bitcoin companies have already gone through the mining process. When a math equation is solved, miners receive Bitcoin as a reward. The amount of Bitcoin that is spent solving an equation is “the reward per block”. The reward is halved per block every four years (this happens every 210,000 blocks, blocks are mined every 10 minutes on average). The mapping remains consistent because the coding behind these equations is a self-adapting mechanism that self-regulates the rate at which the equations are solved.
Due to the decreasing rate of bitcoin mining, the last will be in 2140. Recent data suggests that approximately 165,000 tons of gold were mined and now exist above ground. At least 4,500 tons are mined each year, but it is not known how much is left of the mining.
Another major difference between gold and bitcoin is how it is stored. Gold is not convenient to store and can be easily stolen or lost. Bitcoin can be stored in a digital wallet hosted by various online services that can safely store Bitcoin so that no one can steal it. However, if passwords are lost, the bitcoin cannot be recovered. While most gold investors keep gold in secure vaults, there is an ever-present risk of theft.
One important aspect is that gold has been used as a currency and for trading for over 2,000 years, while Bitcoin has only existed since January 2009. Within 11 years, Bitcoin has earned the title of nationally recognized safe haven. Within a decade, the adoption and impact of Bitcoin across the trading industry have been confirmed and will continue to shape the future of the economy as we know it.
The graph compares the price of gold and bitcoin before it peaked in December 2017. At this point, Bitcoin hit its all-time high. The graph shows that the value of gold increases slowly and steadily over the course of the year, about as fast as the value of money increases. In summary, it is a safe asset to invest in. Now, however, consider the rate at which the value of Bitcoin has increased. The data shows a 20-fold increase in a fiscal year (from $ 1,000 in 2016 to over $ 20,000 in 2017). It’s a clear indication that Bitcoin was a much more profitable investment during this period.
Not everyone can invest in gold because billions of people around the world do not have access to banking infrastructure. However, all that is required to access and purchase Bitcoin is a connection to the Internet.
Bitcoin was introduced to solve these problems by sending value around the world with almost no fees. Both Bitcoin and Gold have very liquidated markets that many can trade with fiat money. Gold is a safe asset to invest in as the price of bitcoins is very volatile. This can be seen when the price of Bitcoins soared from under $ 1,286 (£ 1000) to over $ 19,302 (£ 15,000) in just one year. However, the volatility works both ways as the Bitcoins price fell to around USD 6,430 (£ 5,000) in 2018 and slowly began to rise.
People often consider Bitcoin to be Gold 2.0 because both have very similar properties, neither require a relevant governing body to operate and have a corresponding value, nor do they both have a limited supply.
