Bitcoin gained more than 300% in 2020, pushing its market value to more than $560 billion. During the past year, the price was driven by the rising fears from COVID-19’s economic impact. Additionally, other investors bought bitcoin as a hedge against Central Banks‘ money printing programs and devaluation.
