Now many people make money with cryptocurrencies.
For example, Bitcoin is popular. Bitcoin also faced obstacles on its way to dominance. The proliferation of nascent technology was accompanied by scandals: for example, in 2013, the FBI liquidated the illegal online exchange for drugs and smuggled goods Silk Road, where all transactions took place in bitcoins, and in 2014 hackers stole $ 450 million from the Mt. Gox. At the end of 2017, when Bitcoin rose in price to $ 20,000, there was a hype around speculation with cryptocurrencies, which generated thousands of useless cryptocurrency tokens and caused losses to investors worth billions of dollars.
