Intrigues me

Not really heard about it until this year, from what I understand is it not just like being able to trade stock aren't you investing in bitcoin if I bought 14, 2 years ago I would be a richer man if I had held onto them just like how the stock market works, I don't think it's a necessary innovation and the fact that China has outright said nope to it is gonna be an impact but it may be something I think about putting some money towards.
