Why do we have the demo account?

Every day, billions of people use their search engine to find the answers to questions or solutions to problems, and they are making a lot of money out of it. Similarly, the free demo account works as an advertisement for Forex. Giant smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, Apple spend around 200 billion US dollars per year on advertising. That is their 20% of yearly revenue. But they do get a return. After all, people all over the world buy from them. Forex is also doing the same thing by advertising the availability of a free demo trading account in which you can practice trading using fake money.
