Bitcoin set new record and exceeds the $ 15,000 mark:
In the start of this month on Thursday, 7/12, after overcoming the $ 10,000 per unit barrier, Bitcoin has hit another record of trading at $ 15,000.
The virtual currency was around $ 3,500 in the mid of September and began in 2017, trading for less than $ 1,000. According to the Wall Street Journal, it’s not all party-good when it comes to Bitcoin, as this record currency appreciation of more than 900 percent in 2017.
In the last month, the economist Joseph Stiglitz, winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize, made harsh criticism of the crypto-currency, calling for its banishment. Interview with Bloomberg, the specialist said that “Bitcoin is only successful because of its potential for fraud and lack of supervision.” “It’s a bubble that will give many emotions to many people as it rises and falls.”
