Dorsey, declared fan of cryptocurrencies
Jack Dorsey’s interest in cryptocurrencies is not new, since he has investments in this type of currency and recently sold the first tweet in history, his work, for a price of 3 million dollars. To do this, he used the Ethereum network, a specialist in developing smart contracts or smart contracts.
Currently, Bitcoin reaches a very high price, around 56,000 dollars per unit, about 47,000 euros, and the rest of the currencies move in the shadow of it. Bitcoin was created in 2008 by a person, or group of people who use this pseudonym, called Satoshi Nakamoto. Since then, Bitcoin has suffered a multitude of fluctuations in its price. Both this currency and the rest of the virtual ones, are not subject to inflation. However, they have extreme volatility, changing their price very quickly.
If your desire is to be aware of what these coins cost, you can do like Dorsey. But paying more than 300 euros for an instrument of these characteristics seems more of a whim for those who have money to spare. And there is no doubt that Dorsey is, in fact his fortune is estimated at 5 billion dollars.
