Bitcoin: Bubble of Epic Proportions?
Aug 14, 2017

  • Could 'the most profitable investment of all time' also be a bubble?
  • Is the recent market correction finally creating opportunity?

On a post-lunch stroll, a colleague told me about a book he's reading about the biggest speculative bubbles of all time...and how he couldn't help but draw a lot of parallels to bitcoin.

He can't be faulted. The way the cryptocurrency has moved in recent years, it does appear to be a bubble of epic proportions.

If one had invested Rs 1,000 in bitcoin in 2010, it would be worth a stunning Rs 60 million today. That's a 60,000 bagger in just seven years.
