But, Rogers stated that bitcoin is still one of the only forms of sound money in the market that is now being dominated by digital tokens and altcoins. Bitcoin, however, remains top of the heap by nearly a two to one margin at last report.

Trading on Monday actually saw Ethereum regain its status as the second most valuable cryptocurrency in terms of market value; Ripple's rapid gains gave it the second-place slot for a while, but now, the positions have traded, and Ripple is back down to third.

"It's just digital currency", said Jason Wilson, with L'Argent Services.

The support member concluded the conversation with, "Rest assured that we will send an email to you once we receive an update on this matter".

Or put another way, why would someone use their bitcoin to buy, say, a house, if they believe the price of bitcoin is set to rise another 20 times from its current valuation?

"My goal is to turn Oklahoma into a crypto-hub", he said.

(Kitco News) - Hypothetically, bitcoin could succeed as real money, but in practice it will be an uphill battle due to countless obstacles standing in cryptocurrency's way, said Goldman Sachs in a report. There was bad news aplenty, however, as both bitcoin and the up-and-coming coin Ripple took hits.

If bitcoin seems confusing or mysterious, it's because it kind of is. As Bill Gates is reportedly a massive supporter of a decentralized digital currency, we can assume that the issue was entirely technical. According to Reuters, South Korea's presidential office said that the plan hadn't been finalized and is just one of the things being considered to deal with the nation's worries about the volatile cryptocurrency markets.

Several major fund managers and renowned investors have been suggesting that investors avoid trading bitcoin, while the Securities Exchange & Commision has informed people to "exercise caution" and be wary of scammers. These points together got more than a few people interested in selling off and taking profits accordingly.

Bitcoin, the world's largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, has created a market frenzy in recent months.

The surging interest in cryptocoins has been met with concern globally as well but most central banks (excluding China) have refrained from supervising the virtual currency directly. He noted that as the financial mainstream takes digital currency more seriously, a rules-based system is likely, at least for bitcoin trading.

Steam, the digital video game distribution platform, also stopped accepting bitcoin for payments only a few weeks ago, in December 2017. While bitcoin remains as the most dominant cryptocurrency in the global market, it is no longer more valuable than all of the other cryptocurrencies in the market combined.
