Bitcoin is operated by a technology called Blockchain. The design of blockchain technology aimed to make Bitcoin functional. The technology later started getting attention for its use in several other industries. This sound technical structure is one of the main reasons for Bitcoin’s acceptance. Blockchain is a secure and decentralized system where peer-to-peer transactions take place.
 
Economic slowdown
 
The year 2020 has been witnessing a global economic slowdown. The sluggish economic trend that started in the last few years is continuing. The origin of Bitcoin was due to the global financial crisis. So people and companies are feeling safe to invest in Bitcoin. For them, Bitcoin is a “haven” for investors.
 
COVID19 impact
 
The pandemic has affected global finance. The already sluggish global economy got further blow due to COVID19. The world remained standstill for one year. The light has not ended yet. Most of the economic and industrial activities are facing problems. Due to this, investors are getting attracted to Bitcoin. For them, it is an alternative investment avenue.
