During the last couple of years, Bitcoin has seen its ups and downs, yet, it has never managed to overcome the collapse it faced after the Mt. Gox accident, when millions of dollars-worth of Bitcoin were stolen from one of the world’s most popular Bitcoin Exchanges at the time- until now.
The year of 2017 is starting out big in the world of Bitcoin, considering the fact that the digital currency has just managed to break $1,000, a figure that was last achieved at the beginning of January 2014, thus showcasing the fact that Bitcoin is now back on its feet, and stronger than ever. Not only this, but Bitcoin is also significantly stronger when compared to 2013/14, due to the fact that the overall market capitalization of the entire bitcoin Blockchain has surpassed the value of $16 billion, a figure never seen before on the market. Indeed, this is still considerably smaller when compared to the market cap of PayPal, which is situated at $47 billion, yet it proves that there is still enough place for growth, and that bitcoin will likely surpass that too, in the near future.
