The value of bitcoin, the virtual currency that was launched by an anonymous programmer in 2009, has dropped nearly 70% since its debut.
But it is still worth over $8,000, and it could be worth more than $100,000 within a few months.
But how do you get that kind of money?
The bitcoin community is not exactly a happy bunch.
There are a number of different types of users who want to own bitcoin, with different motivations.
The first is the tech-savvy.
Many are trying to make a buck with their new bitcoins, selling them for cash.
Others, like bitcoin miner Mike Hearn, want to make money in the bitcoin market.
“It’s a pretty good business,” Mr Hearn said.
“I don’t know how much money we can make for this.”
Another bitcoin enthusiast, Nick Szabo, has been trading for about two years.
“You could say I’m in it for the long haul,” he said.
“I think that if I sell now, I’m going to lose money.”
Other people have been looking for ways to make the money back.
“The first time I used bitcoin, I spent $30k on a house in London,” Mr Szabo said.
The second kind of investor is the bitcoin merchant.
They buy bitcoin with credit cards and cash and then convert the money into cash and sell it on to buy a home.
“We buy them with cash because it’s a better way to pay than credit cards,” said Mr Szabos partner, Rob Simeone.
“But if we can get them to do that, we can sell them on to the other side.”
While bitcoin has been on a roll, there are still a number issues to overcome.
“There are problems with transaction malleability, fraud, and mining costs,” said Nick Szaboos partner, Doug Simeones.
“These are all things that will need to be addressed before the technology really takes off.”
