Investing in cryptocurrencies is risky. Nevertheless, bitcoin, ether and other cryptocurrencies are now regarded as recognized investment instruments. This is evident on the stock exchange, where in October 2021, the first bitcoin ETF was launched on the market in the USA. Brazil and Canada had previously given the green light for trading with a bitcoin index fund.
Demand for crypto investments – on a par with their potential returns – is high worldwide. However, investors who previously regarded cryptocurrencies as a safe haven in times of crisis, as claimed by some experts, have been disappointed: for the time being, blockchain money has not proven this to be the case.
