The exchange rate of bitcoin for the first time in three years exceeded $1000

The course of bitcoin in early January for the first time in three years exceeded $1000 — as of Sunday evening, 2 January, the cost was $1022, which is a record since December 2013. During the year the bitcoin has risen more than any of the currencies in the world — by 25%, writes Reuters.

Bitcoin is the first and most famous cryptocurrency in the world: the first transaction with its use took place in 2009.

The course of bitcoin is volatile enough. For example, once in the beginning of 2014 was hacked into digital Tokyo exchange Mt.Gox, a bitcoin for weeks fell from $1100 to $400. And although in recent years the rate has become more stable, but it is still more prone to jumps and drops compared to the official money.

The absolute record of bitcoins was installed in late 2013, when a «coin» gave $1163. The total amount of bitcoins in circulation is estimated at $16 billion.

We will remind, in February 2014 the national Bank warns Ukrainians against the use of Bitcoin, but at the end of 2016 the Board of the National Bank presented a roadmap Cashless Economy, in which first spelled out plans to use Blockchain technology (such as Bitcoin) in Ukraine.
