For information, throughout 2020, the price of bitcoin has increased three times. The increase in btc prices even occurred amid the fall in the stock market due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said, for investors who want to invest in BTC, it is better to start now with Dollar Cost Averaging or buy regularly.
