The cryptocurrency technology really draws attention in Brazil, especially in the last year, a period in which Bitcoin, the largest of digital currencies, went through a huge appreciation in the market.
With this movement, many people who did not know the technology began to see a market involved in a process of financial innovation. Across the world, even without regulation, Bitcoin continues to attract people to the ecosystem, as this currency is decentralized and does not have interference from either the government or companies.
