What's been going on with the price of Bitcoin? Steven Lord explains why the drop in market price may not be an accurate barometer for the currency's long-term prospects, and why it may actually drive innovation in bitcoin products and services, in this week's Modern Money.

    Still can't understand bitcoin popularity. Any number of cryto-currencies can (and do) exist. I'd much rather bet on gold retaining its value 100 years from now.

    Nico - Price weakness could also mean that supply is currently outpacing demand. As price discovery continues, price will fluctuate accordingly, no?

    Bitcoin appears to be acting like other fiat currencies but a bit move volatile given that it is new and not well tested. Adding derivatives to this market will only distort its price more.

    He maintains credibility by admitting fully that the outcome is still binary. Size your position accordingly.

    Not sure I agree that "price" does not matter. Of course it matters! It's called price discovery and supply/demand factors. Weakness means that interest is waning and possible downdraft in "price".
