Bitcoin (BTC) has proven to be quite different from the rest of the coins in the market. The situation of the world’s largest digital currency by market cap is different as the inflation rate of the digital currency is just 3.97 percent. After Bitcoin (BTC) halving next year, BTC inflation rate will reduce by 50 percent. This would bring the inflation rate of Bitcoin (BTC) lower than the present Federal Reserve interest rate.
Compared to the lean inflation rate of Bitcoin, altcoins such as XRP (XRP) and Zcash (ZEC) seem like penny stocks whose value is always plunging lower. The price of Bitcoin (BTC) is up by more than 170 percent since the beginning of this year. Meanwhile, XRP and Zcash (ZEC) have lost about 25 percent of their value so far.
