In July 2010, Bitcoin began trading at US$0.0008. By mid-April of 2021, Bitcoin prices reached new all-time highs of over $60,000 but by the summer of that same year prices were down by 50%. Bitcoin later reached its all-time high above $68,000 in November 2021. In 2022, Bitcoin's price continued to gradually decline but this is a natural process, as we have seen it happen before.

What is Bitcoin ?
Bitcoin is a digital currency or a form of digital asset, which is of high market value. It is ranked 1st in the crypto market. Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency that no one controls and anyone can use it in order to transfer monetary units of the network. Bitcoin has made it possible to send money to any part of the world easily and regardless of geographical borders and banking networks.
A very important function of Bitcoin is to maintain value. Because as we know, governments and central banks have the power to print money indefinitely and thereby reduce the value of their national currencies. In the Bitcoin network, although everyone can participate in the creation of new currency units, the total number of coins that can be created can be a maximum of 21 million units. The limited number of Bitcoin coins and the impossibility of creating more Bitcoins than what miners are allowed to mine are from the rules of the Bitcoin network which protect its value.
