The new craze in the marketplace is all about Bitcoin and the get-rich-quick phenomena that surrounds it.  It promises super profits for those who dare to take a bet on it. Yet very few people understand its workings, its prospects for generating wealth, its volatility and its inherent dangers. Some consider it as money, others as commodities, yet others treat it as an attractive investment while most don’t know what to make of it.
