Bitcoin is an innovative digital asset that is already making giant waves in the finance industry. It is the world’s first currency to be completely free from the control of a government or any corporation.

And, it only takes around 45 minutes to do a transaction compared to platforms like Coinbase which normally takes around 2 to 3 days. Just started using this platform?
