Crypto Investments


The year 2021 was an interesting one for the crypto market. We saw bitcoins going on a thrilling ride with many highs and lows and touching multiple all-time new roaring prices. Peoples interest in crypto skyrocketed dramatically last year, which made crypto a hot potato. The credit goes to resilient investors like Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss, Barry Silbert, Elon Musk, and the schoolboys boosting the benefits of bitcoins on Facebook. Many mainstream corporates too twinned the crypto trading club by buying in.

The Paycer UG founder and chief technology officer Nils Gregersen says that bitcoin will touch at least $2,00,000 by 2025. He claims that the trend is bullish because many traders and investors are opening accounts with the exchange. Nothing is guaranteed though. Cryptocurrency investments are still a risky bet. Dave Abner, the head of global development of cryptocurrency exchange, Gemini, said that the world is paying an unnecessary amount of focus and attention to the crypto industry.
