This highly recognised currency was the first cryptocurrency to exist.
It is managed to ensure a limited supply of Bitcoin is produced, with a maximum quantity of 21 million Bitcoin units ever to be in circulation. With such a limited supply, it is easy to see why its value has skyrocketed to make it the highest value coin available.
When it was introduced, the price of 1 Bitcoin was less than 1 cent. Its current value is just over $9,000 USD per coin (as at May 2018), and it's easy to see why this coin has made so many millionaires.
