Bitcoin, a adrift mine

The bitcoin, best-known virtual currency, presents a serious risk of short-term monetary crash. The Criptomoneda had a quotation of only pennies in 2009; Today he is attributed a slightly higher value to $15,000 per unit. In past two years, 2,500% have been revalued — 40% in last week — a percentage that is ten times above threshold that monetary analysts consider to be a definite risk bubble; In addition, it suffers price fluctuations in short term that may well be defined as extreme volatility. There is a very high risk of collapse of bitcoin which, according to many economists, has a real value of zero. The bitcoin is today a mine adrift and almost all financial regulators warn against it.
