What is Bitcoin: Advantages of BTC loans

Bitcoin's history is a mysterious one and still is to this day. According to what we do know, BTC was first invented back in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto. One year later, the crypto was released as an open source on cypherpunk web board. It quickly created a lot of buzz in the tech community.

Eventually, it escaped its dark reputation as the "currency of the dark web" and now is a viable means of currency. As the most popular crypto on the market, there are many advantages (and some disadvantages) to receiving a Bitcoin loan.
