“technological innovation and financial generates sometimes unreasonable expectations. In the criptomonedas intersects the hype technology with the speculative bubble.

The partner of Deloitte adds that these processes end up always in a major correction that, in the case of bitcoin, it has been produced “with a violence unusual”.

The worst time. The bitcoin has lost out on 2018 80% of its value and it is living its worst moment this month, close to $ 4,000. Yesterday she even came in some moments of the session to get off of the 3,700 dollars.

The fall in the value of bitcoin can lead to a flight of investors which, until recently, seen on the currency digital a new gold mine. The crash also desincentivará part of the mining community, those who deal with create powerful computers new coins, the operation for which they spend huge amounts of electricity in exchange of a remuneration.

a few weeks Ago that the disagreements in the community of the criptomonedas resulted in a split —fork, in the jargon of the industry— the bitcoin cash —which, in turn, had been born also in 2017 as cleavage of the bitcoin—. This conflict has also been a spur to the drop in the value.

it Is true that bitcoin has lost about 700,000 million dollars (more than 618.530 millions of euros) capitalization in a few months. But it is too early to declare even by dead this criptomoneda.
