Social networks encourage purchases

Anyone who last thought that the Bitcoin rally was over was wrong. Fired by Tesla boss Musk, the Bitcoin shoots to just under 40,000 euros in February 2021! It reached an all-time high twice in a row in a very short time – on February 9th and 12th, 2021 . Bitcoin is currently on everyone’s lips again. The course is currently being driven by hype in social networks and increasing acceptance by companies and investors. But is it currently still worthwhile for small investors to get started?

Nobody can predict how Bitcoin will develop. The fact is, however, that inexperienced small investors in particular can also lose a lot of money when trading cryptocurrencies. Anyone who invests in Bitcoin should be aware of this and, at best, not invest money that is actually needed for other financial obligations. Right now there is high volatility in the crypto market and short-term price falls are quite conceivable. If you want to try your luck, it is better to act with “play money”, which can be dispensed with in the worst case. It remains exciting.
