In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz used 10,000 Bitcoin to purchase two pizzas and with Bitcoin being worth around $3000 CAD as of July 2017, these bitcoins would be worth roughly $30 million CAD. What makes cryptocurrencies so special that they are appreciating at a rapid pace? Let’s just say you can transfer $81 million around the globe within 20 minutes for a fee of about $3.
CryptoCanucks are a group of friends who got introduced to the Cryptocurrency world in 2015 and have been keeping track ever since. We thought instead of spending our days brainstorming great ideas between each other, we should research and analyze what we’re most passionate about. Our experience stems from and has been developed in both business and technology. We come from diverse backgrounds with experience in finance, forex, software development and digital marketing. This provides us with the ideal combination of backgrounds and skills required to deliver valuable information to cryptocurrency community and enthusiasts.
We identified several gaps between the cryptocurrency community and the information available to the public. The reason for these gaps are:
- Cryptocurrency market and its related technology, blockchain, are highly dynamic – new developments and advancements occur every day and we want to keep our community on top of these developments
- Multiple unverified sources for information, trading and investing platforms – we strive to provide credible content and insightful data-driven analysis
Following the past, present and future developments of various cryptocurrencies and the issuance of new cryptocurrencies has been our focus. At CryptoCanucks we strive to bridge this information gap and become the go-to resource for cryptocurrency related news and insights and analysis for our fellow Canucks.
