Past Performance – The Bitcoin Example

Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency and certainly still the best known. How has it done since its introduction in 2010? Let’s say you bought $100 worth of Bitcoins on January 1, 2011 and held on to them. How much would they be worth today? $500? $10,000? $100,000?

The answer is staggering: $100 invested in 2011 would be worth more than $1.2 million today! And there is no end to the rise in sight. Here is how your investment of 100$ would have been at the end of each year to today :

  • 2011 : 1 573 $
  • 2012 : 4 503 $
  • 2013 : 252 497 $
  • 2014 : 106 565 $
  • 2015 : 137 835 $
  • 2016 : 212 738 $

 

So far, 2017 has been another year of stunning performance. The Bitcoin has set record after record and is now worth much more than an ounce of gold. Your initial investment would have soared to nearly $1.2 million.
