The Bitcoin frenzy of 2017 appears to be over. As of early this morning, one bitcoin fetched nearly $12,000.
Talk about a wild ride!
The value of one bitcoin fell to $9,958 (£7,222) before making a slight recovery, according to a price index run by the news site Coindesk. The cryptocurrency enthusiasts however are very excited that this dip would actually be considered as a buying opportunity and the value of these cryptocurrencies would rise further to surpass the older highs and continue to provide such astronomical returns to investors.

It is anyone's guess how much money has been borrowed on credit cards or through higher home mortgages to foolishly bet on never-ending cryptocurrency price appreciation. While it has not been a good week for bitcoin, and cryptocurrency as a whole, it is safe to say we will definitely be seeing more news from it in the coming months. Rumours in the country indicate the government may be planning to ban the centralized trading of digital currencies. And somewhere along the way, highflying assets will get hit with a hard reset or two before consolidating and moving higher. However, as for the people who purchased bitcoin late previous year, they are still on the safe side. We may even see some cryptocurrency-linked personal bankruptcies. The cryptocurrency surged during the year, smashing record after record, but it started 2018 in a downward spiral.
