Secrets Unveiled: How Does Cryptocurrency Gain Value?

The one thing that makes cryptocurrency famous is its volatility. Almost every day or week, we get to hear that some crypto has gained value, and some have drastically made people lose millions. You can hear about someone’s overnight success and hear the tragic stories of some. This is all because of the crypto’s fluctuations and the market trend. Investors and traders are the ones who set the market trends. Let us explain. For instance, a new product of Apple is launched. It isn’t beneficial, but it is a limited edition version and has a high price. The likelihood that it will run out increases as more people purchase it.

Something similar happens with the price of crypto coins. If there is a coin that is low in production but high in demand, its value will go sky-high. The more people want the coin, the higher its price will be. Mostly it works like that. Some other reasons for this high demand and low supply are discussed further.

Background of Cryptocurrency

The name currency was included because it was developed with the aim of becoming a means of transaction and investment for everyone. The blockchain technology used in developing the software is unique and provides complete safety and security to its users. All of the data is stored in units which makes a complete block. Once your block is verified, it is cannot be changed. After that, another block connects with it, making a… you guessed it, making it a Blockchain.

The main aspect of this technology is that you wouldn’t require any central organization or a bank to conduct your investment or trade. Everything is done on the cryptocurrency platform. You mine coins through mining rigs or use an online platform like There are a lot of coins to choose from, but the ones that rock the market are Bitcoin and Ethereum. They have the highest value and are guaranteed to give you profit for your money. 

How Does the Value of Cryptocurrency Increase?

We discussed one of the reasons at the beginning regarding the increase in the price of crypto. It was that the supply of crypto determined its value. It depends on the fact that how many people are willing to mine the coins and how many want to sell them. The value or the category of the cryptocurrency also matters. If a coin is in high demand for a month and then loses its popularity, no one would like to invest in it, and it doesn’t matter if it has had a high value in the past few days. Now, it isn’t worth anything and trading on it because the currency had a good or bad past isn’t a good option. If other businesses like restaurants, online shopping platforms, and different places start to accept crypto, then its value will increase too. 

The desire for digital currencies is the key factor. If it has a high demand, its value will increase. And if not, then it won’t have a good value.

How Can Investors Increase the Value of Crypto?

You hold the reigns of the market. Here are some ways traders consciously or unconsciously increase or decrease the price of a cryptocurrency coin:

  • Mining: It is the process of solving extremely complex mathematical equations in order to earn rewards. The effect on the supply of cryptocurrencies will increase as you earn more incentives.
  • Buy Low, Sell High: Most of the traders that are trading in cryptocurrency and stocks are applying this rule. It has been successful for those with much better market experience. This method takes time for new people but is also beneficial for them.
  • Acceptance by Institutions: The more widespread the acceptance of cryptocurrency as a payment method by corporations and other organizations, the greater its necessity. Crypto can become a normal currency outlet for people if that happens.
  • Social Media Coverage: We have seen many altcoins becoming popular because some celebrity or social media influencer endorsed them. Coins get rapid recognition by this method, but if people forget about them, they will rapidly decrease in value.


The rising and falling of crypto mainly depend upon user behavior. Crypto will become increasingly popular if there is a vital requirement and limited availability. Always do your groundwork before making an investment in any cryptocurrency. As the market is super volatile, the history of coins sometimes doesn’t follow the market trends. So, observe closely how the main and popular coins behave and then make your investment.
