Earlier this week, HBSDealer took note of the price of a Bitcoin — roughly $15,000. On Friday, the cryptocurrency value was running at about $13,860.
That sharp drop shows the financial acumen of readers of HBSDealer, the vast majority of whom described $15,000 price tag on a single Bitcoin as "ridiculously high," in this week's poll question.
Specifically, the poll asked: "The cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin was selling for just under $15,000 on Monday. What's your take?"
- 9% — At $15,000, Bitcoin is a bargain
- 3% — At $15,000, Bitcoin is priced about right
- 9% — At $15,000, Bitcoin is high
- 79% — Come on, $15,000 is ridiculously high
As a point of information, Bitcoin's price in early January 2017 was a little more than $1,000.
