Bitcoin is one of the first major cryptocurrencies to gain traction since it was launched in 2009. Since then, the value of Bitcoin has soared, reaching a peak of $64,863 USD on April 14, 2021. Thanks to this headline-worthy value, Bitcoin has garnered a lot of positive attention from the media, but there are also those that don’t agree with cryptocurrencies. As a result of these clashing interests, there seem to be a growing number of myths about Bitcoin that could potentially harm its value and prevent people from getting invested in cryptocurrencies. So in this post, we’ll be dispelling some of the biggest myths about Bitcoin and explaining why they’re false.

Cryptocurrency has completely changed the way we view finance in a little over a decade. Digital assets play an integral role in modern investing. In fact, close to one-fifth of American adults now hold Bitcoin while that figure is set to grow.

Digital asset infrastructure encompasses the technology that underpins digital assets. This includes a variety of companies and products, from crypto-mining to digital asset exchanges.
