How to buy Bitcoin in Finland
Is BTC a good investment in Finland?
Bitcoin has been a popular name over the last decade. The growth in Bitcoin’s popularity has made it a globally acknowledged currency and a valuable asset. 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. You should keep in mind that in the world of cryptocurrencies, every high has a low and after every low, there will be a high sometime. So, it is important to get the timings right. Understanding the nature of the market and analyzing the movements of Bitcoin can be a guide for investors. That is why people’s attention and interest in Bitcoin remains high yet cautious, regardless of its price. As a result, some crypto market experts have even predicted that Bitcoin’s price could reach around $79,000 by the year 2025. In simple terms, it is hard to reach a definite answer when it comes to crypto investments. But if you have a good crypto market outlook to some extent and Bitcoin fits within your risk tolerance prospects, then it could be a satisfactory investment on the long-term perspective.
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. This is one of the reasons that distinguishes Bitcoin as a long-term investment.
