How Bitcoin/Cryptocurrency Works?
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency, cryptocurrencies are digital currency that is not associated with any bank or government. They are based on the blockchain concept which uses a person to person encrypted transaction. That enables a user to pay anonymously, the coin is received by the miner who mines that block, verifying a user’s transaction using computing power which rewards the miner with a coin.
These coins can be bought or sold, and since there are a limited number of bitcoin in the blockchain, so the value of each coin goes on increasing as fewer and fewer coins are left. Similarly, when coins are sold, that means there are more and more coins, which results in degradation of the coin value.
But these currencies are yet to be accepted in the overall mainstream market as a currency. Banks and financial institutions allow transactions and deals in bitcoins and cryptocurrency.
Why did Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin value fell down?
On Wednesday, the Chinese banking association’s website was updated with a warning, that it’s risky to invest in cryptocurrency because they are volatile in nature. Almost all the cryptocurrency players fell down as China and its allies withdrew big chunks of money. This has resulted in a big dip which all of us are seeing in the cryptocurrency market. People might get a heart attack as Bitcoin has dropped most than 45% since April 13.
Swinging 20,000 dollars every day is normal for Bitcoin but a fluctuation like this is devastating. Ethereum is currently at 1,72,000 rupees dropping from 2 lacs. Ethereum has grown from 14k to 3 lacs in the last 1 year. Just imagine how much an investor would have earned with it. Bitcoin was launched in 2009 by a person or a group using the name Santoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin was quickly adopted by enthusiasts. In 12 years Bitcoin has made a mark in the market and is the leading cryptocurrency.
Can I convert Bitcoin to Cash?
There are many ways to do this. Bitcoin is just a simple currency that can be changed into any form like a dollar is compared to rupees and vice-versa. So just use any cryptocurrency exchange, such as Coinbase. Sell your bitcoin there or any other cryptocurrency and directly transfer the funds to your bank account and use it however you need.

Regulators believe that this dip is temporary as digital currency already has a market value of 1.72 trillion dollars. So, belief in what you have invested in, panicking is going to make everything worse.
