Bitcoin is a famous cryptocurrency that was created in January 2009. Even though its origin and the person behind Bitcoin's creation is still a mystery, more and more people are investing largely in digital currency. One of the big reasons behind its undisrupted investment flow is the lower transaction fees than bitcoin offers. It is comparatively lesser than the traditional online payment mechanism. As it is operated in a decentralized model, governments can't intervene in the process and moderate it. Once a user creates a bitcoin address, they can create more whenever they need one. Unfortunately, the bitcoin value has been going down since Elon Musk pointed its impacts on climate change. Furthermore, the People's Bank of China's announcement on reiteration of digital tokens as a form of payment also contributed to its plummet.
