Full year 2016, Bitcoins were up by 121%

Full year 2016, Bitcoins were up by 121%

In a world where the value of fiat currencies is being called into question on account of reckless money printing by central banks, the virtual currency Bitcoin found many takers. 

The cryptocurrency has hit its highest level since December 2013. For the full year 2016, Bitcoins were up by 121%. That made Bitcoin the best performing of all the asset classes in 2016. 

Sharp Surge in Value of Bitcoins



Before you regret missing out on the returns, let us shed some light on aspects of this asset class. 

Bitcoins were launched in October 2008 with a dollar value of zero and no government backing. This means unlike other currencies, Bitcoins have no central bank backing. 

Further, bitcoins do not yet come under any regulations. With zero collateral and prone to illegal use, the currency is seen as a systemic risk. 

And if bubbles have already started forming in Bitcoins, logic suggests that somewhere in the future this 
bubble will burst

The chances of the bubble bursting could be higher if governments and central banks find some way of regulating it.
