The Overview of Bitcoin and the Crypto Market
The cryptocurrency market has grown to a trillion dollar industry in a decade. Nevertheless, market strategists predict that the sector can attract more trillions of dollars in the coming decades as regulators around the world shift towards crypto adoption.
