INFOGRAPHIC: Bitcoin Vs. Gold
Bitcoin has grown wildly in popularity in its short history. But how does it stack up against gold, the international currency for thousands of years? Find out in today's post!
For thousands of years, gold has been the international currency, and for good reason. Gold is a substance that is in high demand and there is a finite amount that can be produced. Bitcoin, through cryptography, was created on these very principles. Bitcoin must be mined, is in high demand, and there is only a finite amount that is available – just like gold.
Relative to its short history, Bitcoin has made a significant global impact and has become popular with those who seek an alternative to fiat currency. Only time will tell which has more upside: bitcoin or gold.
