I get a little board of "Bitcoin is rocketing" or "Bitcoin is crashing" headlines. Niether is true, and never was. Bitcoin is in effect a (virtual) commodity, but with a much lower cap than others such as gold. This means that small things, like Brexit, or the fall of the Chinese Yuan, or the discontinuation of Indian cash bank notes and such will effect the price in a major way, with the inevitable exageration of the market by speculators, followed by the resulting corrections when these minor bubbles burst. This means Bitcoin value in effect goes up and down like a yo-yo. However, bitcoin is sound. The commodity aspect is there and is secure, so it will never go back to zero or anything. The general movement of Bitcoin is up at a gradual pace with a few whooshes in either direction as described above. It is not, nor ever has been, a guaranteed wealth creator nor a crashing pudsey/pyramid scheme.
