Soaring value

The sharp rise in price comes less than two months after Bitcoin’s value plummeted to USD109 as a result of the FBI’s Silk Road coup. Founder of the deep-web online market place Ross Williams was arrested in Ulbricht. Nevertheless, the Silk Road raid has eventually led to bitcoin’s value rising.

Consequently, the virtual currency has been given a cautious thumbs up by various US government agencies at a Senate hearing this month. Bitcoin’s price responded to the news by jumping from less than USD500 to nearly USD750.
