Markets News

Crypto markets provide a bird’s-eye view of a burgeoning crypto economy including Bitcoin (BTC) and a host of other crypto networks. The cryptocurrency market is radically different from the traditional global financial and commodities markets. Not only is the structure of these underlying assets fundamentally different, as they are natively digital and noncustodial in many cases, but the market participants are different as well. 

Cryptocurrency networks such as Bitcoin feature a unique composition of stakeholders. There are the miners, which provide security and uptime to the network while earning cryptocurrency for their efforts; traders and investors navigating the ebbs and flows of the market for maximum profits; developers, who are the open-source builders working toward scaling and improving these protocols; and individual users, who may speculate or use their crypto to some productive capacity. 

The dynamics among these stakeholders in these decentralized, open, permissionless systems are in striking contrast to traditional finance and are main topics of discourse in the space. 

Stay tuned to news, analysis and in-depth coverage of crypto markets with Cointelegraph.
