Bitcoin (BTC) is the granddaddy of crypto, and it's arguably the most famous; people who don't even own crypto at least know what it is.
With the performance it's put in over the past few years, you'd have to be under a rock to miss it.
Bitcoin ignited the crypto-mining frenzy where, theoretically, anyone with enough computing power could solve for algorithms that result in coins. I mined Bitcoin myself for a few years. It was also the first "mega-coin" to utilize the decentralized Blockchain ledger.
For all these reasons and more, Bitcoin has soared from a couple of cents all the way past $68,000 in its lifespan, as more and more investors see the value.
Nowadays, I think the most explosive growth opportunities are in small, "third wave" coins Bitcoin and Ethereum paved the way for.
But when I see an opportunity to own Bitcoin for a cheaper price, you're damn right I'm jumping on it, and I'll tell you why - we're face to face with a super-critical technical level right now.
