Bitcoin is no longer a new concept as before when several people experienced much difficulties in getting to understand it. This resulted from inaccessibility of sufficient information on the same. However, the good news is that, Wikipedia currently provides it all. According to last year’s Wikipedia report, the year turned to be so fruitful with many readers coming along to read various aspects concerning the world’s first cryptocurrency (approximately 17 million times). Adequate information on diverse topics including politics, financial systems, social culture and, pre-eminent deaths were provided to all interested readers.
In the 2017 edition top 50 report English version prepared by Wikipedia, Bitcoin is stated as the 9th most read article with a total of 15 million views on the digital encyclopedia. This is really a great accomplishment for Bitcoin and proves its thrust in the mainstream. From the list, Bitcoin got approximately 2.6 million more views than ‘the Rock’, 2 million more than Elon Musk and, 1 million more than Wonder Woman. Other articles that were top in the list that compiled the report included deaths in 2017,Donald Trump, Elizabeth II, Game of Thrones (season 7), and Meghan Markle.
The Wikipedia’s senior editor JFG, argues that Bitcoin is highly speculative and intangible though it would still be a better investment in 2017 than Tesla stock. In the report, Bitcoin is described as good as gold, shinier than lead, bubblier than tulips, held deep in the mines, and highly driving people’s nuts. On the issue of popularity among the general population, Bitcoin seems to have it all as other cryptocurrencies trail far much behind it.
The Blockchain Revolution Is Here
Of all virtual currencies, Bitcoin currently accounts more than 50% of value in the market and this has greatly broadened its user base. People have developed much interest in the world of digital currencies and are trying to get more ideas on the technology behind it. As a result, Bitcoin is on course to break its 2017 record and raise it higher to another rank in this year (2018).
Unlike other traditional currencies, Bitcoin is issued and managed without any central authority. There are no companies, banks or any government regulations or procedures that govern the administration of Bitcoin. This therefore gives it more competence in the market and thus becoming a significant threat to other financial institutions with it designing to win more investors in the long-run.
