In purely speculative terms, Bitcoin has always proven to be the safest to invest. From my point of view, and assuming that I am the first to make a mistake, I am convinced of that. Keep in mind, that being in the ecosystem for years, we can see many transactions that are made, new very powerful players that are entering, new projects that are emerging, coinmarketcap after all, it is our day to day, and All these are very strong indicators that we are on the right track.
Who controls the Bitcoin network?
In the similar method that no one controls the skill behind email, Bitcoin also has no owner. Bitcoin is forbidden by all Bitcoin users in the earth. Although programmers get better the software, they cannot force a change in the Bitcoin protocol because all other users are free to choose the software and version they want. In order for them to remain compatible with each other, all users need to use software that complies with the same rules. Bitcoin can merely work properly if there is a consensus in the middle of all users. Therefore, all users and programmers have a great incentive to protect this consensus.
Do people really use it
Yes. There is a rising figure of business and persons using Bitcoin. This include customary business such as restaurants, houses, law firms, and well-liked Internet services such as Namecheap, WordPress, Reddit, and Flattr. Although Bitcoin is still a comparatively novel occurrence, it is rising fast. At the end of August 2013, the value of all the bitcoins in circulation exceeded 1.5 trillion dollars and the equivalent of millions of dollars in bitcoins was exchanged every day.
