Many investors are likely asking themselves the question, what impact will cryptocurrencies have in the long run? With the current state of the crypto market, it may be difficult to answer. Some proponents are comparing cryptocurrencies and blockchain to the revolution of the public Internet in the 1990’s. Obviously, there have been plenty of issues with full scale adoption of the internet along the way, but it is hard to argue that it has not completely transformed the world. If this new technology indeed becomes a transformative game changer, we could possibly see growth of unrivaled proportions.
As we move farther into 2018, investors may be starting to track daily movements in the cryptocurrency market. Although Bitcoin is still the most talked about crypto, there are others trying to make a name as well. Last year, the dramatic rise in the value of Bitcoin turned a lot of heads. Even though the value has declined recently, there are those who believe that the cryptocurrency is going to hit even greater levels in the coming years. Of course, there are also those who think that Bitcoin will eventually be worthless. Any way it gets sliced, it is hard to deny the popularity and attention that the crypto space has seen in the last few months.
A big drawback that comes with traditional fiat currency payment systems is the amount of time that transactions can take to complete. Alternative currencies such as cryptos have provided the opportunity for peer-to-peer transactions to be conducted without a third party intermediary. The idea that transactions can be completed quicker, less costly, and without interference, has made the new cryptocurrency space very attractive to some. In the last year or so, the crypto market has become one of the hottest discussed topics in financial circles.
