Bitcoin is the world's first and most popular cryptocurrency with many siblings like ethereum, litecoin, and monero vying for the top spot. Invented by the unknown entity Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009, bitcoin has since grown exponentially and began spiking in 2017 as prices reached as high as $20,000. As prices continue to be extremely volatile, bitcoin's novelty has yet to wear off. With other digital currencies on the rise, bitcoin remains one of the most well-known cryptocurrencies in this financial craze.
