Cryptocurrency, also called digital currency or virtual currency, is any currency that is convertible into another without the use of a particular form of government approved paper currency. There are several different forms of cryptosystems, including peer-to-peer (P2P) transfers, commercial, industrial and government backed currencies. The most well known form of digital currency is the most commonly traded: gold. Many people have heard of the recent burst of the bubble of the gold price on the commodities market. The rise of digital currency prices has been attributed, in large part, to the global financial crisis that began in the summer of 2021. Regardless, of whether or not the crisis was directly responsible for the increase in prices, the increasing number of buyers nationwide combined with the lower costs of gold make it a popular investment opportunity among many individuals and institutions.
