What gives Bitcoin its value?
Bitcoin has value because it offers a convenient and secure way of holding and transferring digital money. While Bitcoin has some characteristics of a collectible, Bitcoin’s value is ultimately derived from the extent to which it is adopted, used and supported by people and businesses.
