Therefore, storing large sums of money on an exchange poses an additional risk of theft.

Talking about the performance of Bitcoin in the current market scenario, a crypto analyst at ARK Invest said“For the first time in history, bitcoin is less volatile than the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq. The last time volatility was this low, bitcoin went from $9,000 to $60,000 in less than ‘a year.”

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was trading at $21,278, nearly 3% higher in the past seven days.
