Bitcoin is a digital currency that was invented by Satoshi Nakamoto. Satoshi believed that digital currencies, unlike conventional currencies, could not be altered by any one person or institution. This has seen the value and popularity of cryptocurrency, especially Bitcoin, propel to about $6000 in currency conversion currently despite its few challenges. This is why Southridge Capital has taken an initiative to delve into the digital currency sector. It hopes to provide financial information related to bitcoin to companies that may be interested.
