Bitcoin and various other digital currencies are not only being purchased as investment assets, they are also being used to help individuals travel around the world.
Unlike fiat currencies, which are dished out by central banks and influenced by national and regional economies, cryptocurrencies are 100% decentralized and their values are therefore tightly aligned with their supply and demand.
The value of bitcoin has been a particularly fascinating topic of conversation in 2017. Just over 12 months ago, one bitcoin was only worth $800 and at the beginning of December 2017 it touched $17,000 per bitcoin. This increase in value has seen many people look to cash in on their cryptocurrency investments to spend on lavish holidays.
