The best time to buy Bitcoin was in 2010 - the next best time is right now.

For the first time in history we are able to engineer money. Satoshi Nakamoto did not just create a digital currency in 2009; he introduced a technology that is said to rival the advent of the internet. The cryptocurrency industry is so disruptive that children born today may never know what paper money is. Understanding how cryptocurrencies are changing the world is now unquestionable.
