Many investors ended the year 2017 regretting why they did not jump on to the Bitcoin bandwagon long time ago. Just seven years ago, the value of one Bitcoin was a paltry 30 US cents ($0.30). Simply put, if you had purchased just a $100 dollar worth of Bitcoins on January 1st, 2011, you would have been issued with 333.33 Bitcoins. When the value of the Bitcoin surged beyond $18,000 a piece this past December your $100 investment in 2011 would have been worth a minimum of $5,999,940. You would have made yourself a millionaire!
Perhaps this revelation might leave you biting your fingers wishing you had at least invested a Benjamin ($100 USD) on what was then duped a ‘crazy phenomena’ by the business pundits both on Wall Street and Main Street. Do you now want to get on the Bitcoin bandwagon? Well, it is not too late.
Six Ways to Earn Bitcoins
The most common method to get your hands on Bitcoins is buying them from a Bitcoin Exchange. However, with today’s prices above $11,000, you’d have to part away with a lot of cash to make any meaningful investment on the Cryptocurrency.
The process through which Bitcoins are released into circulation is what is referred to as mining. Bitcoin mining is done through completing difficult calculations so as to discover a new block of Bitcoin which is then added to the public registry otherwise called the blockchain on which transactions are recorded. For every successful registry of a transaction on the blockchain, the computer server that computed the difficult calculations is awarded some Bitcoins. Currently that award stands at 25 Bitcoins. However, the number of Bitcoins awarded this way drops every four years, in 2009 it was 50. So before you invest your savings in setting up your own Bitcoin mining operation, make sure to check with an advanced Bitcoin mining calculator to determine if its all worth your time and money.
