The Breakdown on Bitcoin
Bitcoin is - unlike other currencies - not debt-backed, not subject to devaluation by Quantitative Easing, and has precedence as a safe haven (like gold, which is also volatile) in times of uncertainty -- such as the so-called Trump Age. (It's great for money laundering too!)
If you'd followed the columnist's advice in a timely manner during the last Bitcoin bubble (in 2013), you'd have netted a 200-1000% gain in <6 months. And today, November 14 2016, the price is on the march once more - having risen $10 in the last couple of hours, and $70~ in the last 30 days. Like AMZ stock, BTC's price usually goes up at Christmastime.
