When the value of an investment suddenly soars or collapses, it tends to get a lot of media coverage. In 2017, that investment was Bitcoin.
This highly publicized cryptocurrency started 2017 priced at $978 and, as of early December, reached a value of more than $17,000. That’s a return of more than 1,600 percent in less than a year. No wonder everybody is talking about it. But should you invest in it?
