Bitcoin, Tulip Mania and the need to dwell with knowledge.

As I write this on the 20th of December 2017, 1 Bitcoin (BTC) is worth $ 18,969.33. Exactly one month ago, 1BTC was $ 7,773.30 1. That’s a gain in value of 144% or 5% per day. Even more astounding, it was worth about $1,000 at the start of the year and less than a dollar back in 2011. Suffice to say, you are more than likely to hear everyone talk about this at your Christmas day party.
