I've just been reading a story about a young teenager who at the beginning of Feb 2009 saw something he didn't quite understand on the internet but was curious. The subject matter was about a digital currency, it was called Bitcoin. he liked the idea it needed to be kept in a digital vault and set one up and bought $500 worth on the 1st April 2009 as an April fools joke. The value of each Bitcoin at purchase was $2.97. He still has them. Today for the first time ever the value went over $10,000 each, turning his $500 into $1,683,501.68.
Where did I go wrong?
