Everybody is not talking about cryptocurrency, from tech giants like Elon musk to the average human being. This craze is seen primarily in young people. Most of the crypto craze is driven by social media, and people think that cryptocurrency investment is a futuristic approach in terms of investment.

Cryptocurrency is a very volatile currency. That's why the investment in it could also be precarious. But this risk could either make you a lot of money or could you lose the money. These risks also make this cryptocurrency very attractive to today's generation.

The popularity of cryptocurrency has been increased a lot in recent years. After 2019 there is a surge of traders from progressive countries like India, Pakistan, Brazil etc. And now crypto is seen as the future global currency.

But being the most popular currency out there, it also attracts lots of scammers and hackers who want to steal our confidential and valuable information. As we all know, the transaction of crypto is always done online. That's why it has some risks involved in it. Blockchain technology, on which the whole crypto network works, are very safe from hackers, but there might be some different kind of risk where people can harm you financially.

Sometimes, there is a currency the public started to invest in, which was just started called "squid". This squid currency became famous very quickly because of the Netflix show "Squid Game", which was also aired at that time. So, people started investing in "squid". Most investors think there would be some link between the show and currency, but there was no relation between the two.

After it gained so much popularity and people invested a lot of money, the unknown creator of this currency eloped with all the people's money.

That's the one case, but there could be another this kind of scam, so people need to invest with open eyes.

Cryptocurrency prices are constantly changing, and many people invest in it as we all know how bitcoin prices went from $1 to the highest, $68000.

These statistics make people attract more because they think this is the easiest and safest way to earn actual money. Still, there is a saying, "The great power comes with great responsibilities (and also risk)", The power of earning so much at a time could make you lose so much money if you don't invest intelligently.

The values are volatile, so that prices could go very down or very high. But, of course, nobody could guess it correctly. Still, if you analyse the past market data and evaluate the current market trend, you could make the correct assumption of investing in a particular cryptocurrency.
