What the Crypto?
Last week Bitcoin hit a price of $15,000. Bitcoin launched in 2009, but in the past year has DOUBLED in value.
Digital assets, such as Bitcoin, are emerging alternative asset classes that have recently had unprecedented growth.
But why are digital assets still such a mystery?

These are not a physical currency, just balances kept on a public ledger.
Bitcoin offers the promise of lower transaction fees than traditional online payment mechanisms and is operated by a decentralized authority, unlike government-issued currencies.Investopedia
