Ever since Bitcoin, the first ever peer-to-peer, decentralized digital currency was created and released by the anonymous Satoshi Nakamoto in January 2009, it has brought to the public's attention at a global scale. In just a span of a decade, its market cap has grown into a whopping 1.175 trillion USD, pioneering and leading the entire cryptocurrency industry that is currently worth up to 2.745 trillion USD as of November 2021.
