You’ve probably heard that bitcoins are generated through a process called mining, which involves the use of computer hardware to solve complicated mathematical equations. In the past, people could use their own PCs to mine bitcoins, but things have now evolved so that to make any significant return, you have to first invest in application-specific hardware that can cost thousands.
Most people are choosing, instead, to get involved in bitcoin simply by buying some of the digital currency via online digital wallets or exchanges.
Once you’re in possession of some bitcoins, you then have to make a decision about what to do with them – do you stash them away and hope for the best, do you spend them or do you do a bit of both? Or do you invest bitcoin into investment programs to get more bitcoin? Who doesn’t want to earn while you sleep?
