The Pros and Cons of Crypto Currency

What is Cryptocurrency? It is a digital asset that doesn’t need the government or bank to circulate unlike dollars or Euros. Can you guess how many there are? Over 18,000, but some of the most popular are bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin, and cardano

Now, let’s get into the pros and cons:

Pros

  • Can be a good way to diversify your portfolio
  • Could be a good-long terms investment if demand increases over time
  • Has potential to be the world’s first global currency

Cons

  • It’s volatile (price bounces up and down)
  • Prone to cyberattacks
  • Competitions fierce because there are thousands
  • It’s decentralized, meaning it’s (mostly not regulated by federal authority)
  • In conclusion? Crypto is high risk–you could win big or lose big. If it’s a yes for you, get your seatbelt on, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
