The infamous cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, has exploded into mainstream.
Recent market estimates value the digital currency at $16,000 – which is about $1,000 higher than it was last year.
Additionally, websites like Expedia.com – and even Microsoft – have begun accepting Bitcoin as a method of payment.
Even still, some continue to hold on to their reservations and say they expect the “Bitcoin bubble” to burst. Given its recent success, do you consider Bitcoin to be a good investment opportunity? Why or why not?
