The first type of cryptocurrency that was introduced in 2009 was Bitcoin. Until now, Bitcoin is the biggest name in the field of cryptocurrency. It was also based on blockchain technology. Later on, currency types like Litecoin Name coin, Ethereum Peercoin were introduced. Today we have over 5,000 types of cryptocurrencies. Even though cryptocurrency seems like a good investment, there are still some criticisms about cryptocurrency. Since they are untraceable, they are used for illegal activities.
By all means, 2020 has been a tough year for all of us. But for cryptocurrency affairs, 2020 has been a great time due to the blobal pandemic situation. People have switched to online trading. Most of the young generation is engaging in this trend. Editor of money wire Matt McCall states that 99% of the world population is not aware of the big market events that are going to happen.

With a single click or touch, you can get a loan, buy a vehicle, buy an insurance plan, do anything you want. So, the DeFi can be considered as one of the potential investments for 2021. The Other important thing about this DeFi is, no government can touch these assets. It is quite difficult to predict which currency will gain a dramatic price in 2021.
