  • Bubble or viable investment? The Cryptocurrency market soared from $18 billion in January 2017 to over $350 billion in December. Bitcoin witnessed an impressive 1300% increase in market capitalization during the past year. For the past month, Bitcoin has reached a new all time high every week. Yesterday, Bitcoin reached it’s all time high of over $17,000 per coin.
  • Bitcoin is going through an unprecedented process of monetization and the cryptocurrency market is being financialized. However, significant risks prevail, especially from technological and regulatory side.
  • Currently, few banks such as Bank Vontobel have entered the cryptocurrency arena while most incumbents watched from the sidelines. The first Bitcoin futures have recently been listed on the CBOE. Institutional money is expected to follow into the sector.
