On Thursday, the price of Bitcoin soared to $500 on the exchanges reaching the recent top of the newest 2015 rally.
The speed of this price rise has not been seen since 2013.
The price did hit the $500 high before falling again to $400, at the time of this posting the price had began to go up again cresting $427 at this moment.
This volatility is driving massive interest in Bitcoin again even with Jim Cramer of CNBC asking for people to “give me a lot of bitcoins”.
Bitcoin has come a long way from the obscure, “magic internet money” it once was. Bitcoin is now mainstream.
