Bitcoin was established to compete with the US dollar. Many cryptocurrency supporters believe it will be the next gold.

In recent months, many cryptocurrency supporters, like billionaire Mark Cuban, have maintained that digital currency can keep up with rising prices better than gold. They claim that because it operates outside of the regular financial system, it will become even more detached from the dollar and other mainstream assets.

Because Bitcoin is digital, it offers several benefits such as needing no storage space, no insurance costs and being freely transmitted electronically over any distance. Bitcoin is likely to fulfill a function that real gold cannot as we get closer to the metaverse.

Bitcoin’s value has increased by 2 million percent in the last decade, making it a better investment. Opponents of bitcoin, on the other hand, might argue that tulip bulbs used to function similarly.
