Today Bitcoin (BTC) passed its record high as certain members of the Economic Moderns Family digest their recent gains.
Cryptocurrency as an alternative currency has pushed for widespread acceptance since the launch of the first Bitcoin in 2009.
Even more so, it has become a movement for investors who see it as a place to park money long term, with the idea that eventually it will become a highly used and accepted currency across the world.
This idea has been reinforced by JPMorgan Chase, who is working to create a stable environment for crypto payments.
Along with a growing number of supporting banks, institutional investors have also begun to buy crypto currency.
However, our newly adopted family member (BTC or GBTC) still hasn’t lost its surprising amount of volatility as he was trading briefly below 16,500 on Friday the 27th.
High volatility has been a key reason institutional investors have stayed away from crypto, yet as it becomes more accepted it could also become more stable in its price movements as today it made a quick recovery back to highs.
An article about the WinkleVoss twins came out. You remember them-the ones that sued Zuckerberg for stealing their alleged IP.
They predict $500,000 in bitcoin.
Sometimes, you just got to go with it. But always, always, with a plan.
