The concept of Bitcoin, the most relevant cryptocurrency, is an intriguing one. Just think about it: which other currency’s value changes by billions in the matter of a minute? Whether you think of it as Monopoly-money, or take it extremely seriously, following the evolution Bitcoin can offer you some value. I’m talking about entertainment value. Though the short-term fluctuation in Bitcoin’s worth can be huge – compared to other currencies – it’s still worth a lot. Let’s take the last few days of Bitcoin for an example. On Tuesday, October 17th, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) published a report, concerning Bitcoin.

The CFTC, whose mission is to “foster open, transparent, competitive, and financially sound markets,” points to operational, cybersecurity, and speculative risks. Obviously, this signaled that the cryptocurrency is likely to end up under the microscope of regulators and this signal triggered an 8% drop in Bitcoin price, the largest since China’s crackdown on the currency in September. While these are considerable slumps, Bitcoin has rebounded extremely fast in both cases.
