The cryptocurrency Bitcoin surpassed the $3,000 threshold by continuing its stunning run-up on Sunday afternoon.
This is according to the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index, however competing index CoinMarketCap calculated the highest exchange rate at a just small number of short of $3,000 (across exchanges Bitcoin prices differ, so there is a chance of different exchange rates arrival by different formulas.)
In the early may, the new peak continued its surge when a bitcoin became of worth nearly $1,400. It looks like the cryptocurrency market is in a bubble as its flies in the face of the extending consensus.
It was Mark Cuban’s take on previous Tuesday, however, the own central figures of technology beat him by warning about the exaggerated prices in May from the stage at the Consensus Blockchain conference. The discontented attendees turning away from the extra booked Token Summit conference, Fortune’s Robert Hackett could see the bubble written all around the bitcoin market.
The blockchain technology has now been accepted by a lot of observers including Cuban. The blockchain technology is a promising innovation in the security of data which is based on shared ledgers, has great potential for tracing assets and information in the areas of supply chain management, health records and much more.
However, the price of bitcoin at present depends in large part on assumption about increasing adoption and innovative upcoming services. This is even truer for parallel cryptocurrencies and blockchain systems such as Dash, Litecoin, and Ethereum which are growing with bitcoin.
Yet a market that is speculation driven is also a market that is emotionally fragile. Like sentiment swings quickly as are a lot of bitcoin’s value that evaporates.
