Bitcoin has performed impressively in recent years as more and more investors discover this cryptocurrency for their portfolio.

The king and forefather
of cryptocurrencies

The first decentralised currency
With skyrocketing performances, Bitcoin holds the investor’s attention more than others since its beginnings.

Digital Gold
Like physical gold securely kept in a safe, nowadays Bitcoin is a store of value for any digital portfolio.

The cornerstone of the Bitcoin project is a limited supply of coins, preventing inflation and helping to grow its value (400% in 2020).



The market king

Created in 2009 by a person known as Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin rules over the digital currencies market, making up more than half of the capitalisation. For the time being, the share prices of altcoins still fluctuate based on Bitcoin. Supporters view the currency as digital gold, whose value will only increase over time.

Unequalled to this day

Bitcoin never ceases to amaze with historical highs and lows – definitely the opposite of boring.
