Factors affecting the price of cryptocurrency

  • Supply and demand

    Like with any other asset, the more people and businesses adopt it, the higher the demand. For cryptocurrencies with limited supply like bitcoin, this dynamic pushes their price higher.

  • Media

    The crypto market has captured the interest of both mainstream and social media. When influential figures voice their opinions, crypto prices can be impacted significantly.

  • Government Regulation

    The arrival of cryptos has been met with varying government responses, from the heavy hand of South Korea that drove up value to the embrace by Japan on the other end of the spectrum.

Most Popular Cryptocurrencies

  • Bitcoin

    As opposed to traditional currencies issued by central banks, (i.e. US Dollar, Euro, Sterling etc), bitcoin is not controlled or regulated by any authority. Bitcoin can be exchanged between users without the need for banks. The records of bitcoin transactions are publicly available to all users of the network. The maximum number of bitcoins that can be created was limited to 21 million by its creator.

    Bitcoin Cash was born in August 2017 as a result of bitcoin’s hard fork. Although it is hard to explain a hard fork in simple terms, think of it as an attempt to solve bitcoin’s scalability issue, i.e. the fact that as the number of users increases, the technology used by the bitcoin network needs to get upgraded.
