As with most forms of currency, Bitcoins have individual values. Their main value is that they are very useful to use as a form of digital currency, without having to worry about storing this form of money in an actual wallet. Bitcoins themselves have all of the typical features of money, such as portability, scarcity, recognizability, durability and divisibility, but instead of these features relying on physical attributes, they are instead calculated using extensive algorithms and other forms of mathematics.

Most things have the potential to be considered valuable, from minerals and rocks to types of metal and even wood. All that these things require in order to be considered valuable is a willingness for people to transact with them. That is the exact case with Bitcoins. Although they are not physically existent, they can be used to purchase, trade and transact with service providers, in much the same way as if a buyer was to visit a local supermarket and pay for groceries with their Dollars, Pounds of Euros for example.
So in order for Bitcoins to maintain their values, they would rely on a growing collection of merchants, users and start-up businesses to expand the usage of the Bitcoin around the world. As these organizations transact with one another, the value of the Bitcoin will increase until it is able to replace many different forms of physical currency, opting for a digital existence instead. The same could be said in reverse; although Bitcoins have the potential to grow in value as more people make use of them as a form of currency, if these people were to refuse acceptance of Bitcoins in general, their value would logically decrease. But with statistics clearly demonstrating just how popular the use of Bitcoins has become, the latter theory can be considered irrelevant and so trading Bitcoins or buying and selling them to make money will be a good strategy as their value increase – buyin low and selling high.
With that in mind, the price of an individual Bitcoin relies heavily on the level of supply and demand in general. As the demand for Bitcoins increases (with new transactions taking place daily and rewards being expected from users as their transactions are documented within Bitcoin’s central ledger), Bitcoin value will also increase. As the demand for Bitcoins falls, so will their cost.
