Re: Usage of Blockchain in Supply Chain Management

Advantages and disadvantages of using bitcoin

Due to bitcoin's relatively novel nature, its price can increase or decrease unpredictably over a short period of time, and it can sometimes be more illiquid than other types of currency. This means that keeping your savings in bitcoins is a risky decision and not recommended. Bitcoin is seen as a high-risk asset, and it is not advisable to store money in bitcoins that you cannot afford to lose. On the other hand, due to its high volatility, those willing to take a risk may see considerable returns over a short period of time. Lack of awareness and understanding of bitcoin means it is relatively rarely used among businesses as a billing method. Once more and more businesses and private individuals start using bitcoin, its volatility and its liquidity risk should settle down.

Another thing to consider before acquiring bitcoins is the security of your digital wallet. Like your real wallet, your bitcoin wallet needs to be safe. Indeed, since bitcoin makes it possible to quickly and easily transfer funds anywhere in the world, the security concerns it poses are even greater. Remember, it is your responsibility to adopt good security practices. Overall, bitcoin is considered to be a safe and transparent system due to its cryptographic security. As a bonus, bitcoin users can enjoy considerably smaller transaction fees than those charged by credit cards or PayPal.
