A Decentralized Currency

While fiat currencies (like the US dollar and euro) are controlled by the government and the respective country’s central bank (like the US Fed and ECB), cryptocurrencies are based on a decentralised system. This system is regulated by the global community and managed by a huge network of computers using blockchain technology. This means that no government can influence or manipulate the supply and price of cryptocurrencies. Moreover, cryptocurrencies are owned and traded by people from across the globe and are not controlled by or limited to any one economy or region.

Perfect for Hedging Risks

Since cryptocurrencies cannot be controlled by any government or organization and since they are truly global assets, the prices prevailing in the market are not influenced by any change in the political or economic environment in a particular country. The prices are determined purely by the market forces of demand and supply.

This makes cryptocurrencies a hugely popular asset for traders to diversify their portfolio and hedge risks arising from political instability and economic uncertainty.

Profit Potential

With cryptocurrencies gaining credibility and popularity, prices have been surging. This has resulted in unmatched returns for beginners and expert traders. Moreover, high volatility in the market offers attractive profit potential. Of course, it’s important to remember that it goes both ways and certain trading decisions may result in losses. Despite these significant risks, traders are jumping into the market in hopes of being part of the phenomenal growth story.

Hedging Inflation

Millions of cryptocurrencies are in circulation and being traded today. However, their net supply is limited. This makes cryptocurrency trading similar to trading in gold or diamonds. The scarcity value of cryptocurrencies makes them a popular asset to hedge inflation.
