Poll: What Will Bitcoin's Price be at the End of 2015?

Bitcoin's price has returned to the spotlight following mounting speculation that digital currency purchases in Greece have been driving its recent surge in value. Although typically volatile, the cryptocurrency's price has been relatively more unstable since capital controls were imposed in the southern european country on 29th June. Having hovered around $250 for the last three months, bitcoin's price surpassed the $300 mark over the weekend for the first time since mid-March. It then dropped following the announcement that Eurozone leaders had reached an agreement for a third bailout....

Poll: Will the Bitcoin Price Hit $10k in 2014?

2013 saw the price of bitcoin go from $13 to $266, then to almost $1,200 on the back of strong growth in China. There was a correction, as the Chinese government implemented policies to make bitcoin trading much more difficult, but the digital currency has since rallied and shown significant resilience in the face of adversity. Many believe the price of bitcoin will increase in 2014, with some Wall Street analysts even predicting it could reach almost $100,000 at some point. But what do you think will happen to the price in the coming year? Do you think the bitcoin price will hit $10,000....

Litecoin Predictions, 2015

Since its integration into the virtual payments universe in 2011, litecoin, like most of its digital currency cousins has experienced its ups and downs.

Poll Review: How Important is the Price of Bitcoin?

Just how important is the price of bitcoin? The question could be considered subjective, and that's why it was the topic of last week's poll (which you can find in the lower right-hand corner of all pages). So, getting right to it, it would appear that the price of bitcoin is a big deal compared to really not mattering. Of 134 total votes, about 64 percent of voters said the price of bitcoin "is a huge deal". That equates to 86 votes. (Hopefully we'll get a higher volume of responses on the next one.) The other 36 percent of voters said the price of bitcoin "doesn't really matter", which....

Poll Review: Do You Prefer XBT or BTC?

It's Sunday, and you know what that means. It's time to take a look at last week's poll! In that poll we asked the seemingly age-old question of what the bitcoin abbreviation should be. Most commonly in the community, XBT or BTC have been widely used. But because bitcoin is decentralized, there has been both agreement and disagreement on standards and conventions, since there's no one authority to say what is or is not proper. So getting back to the results, there were a total of 308 votes (and you can look for the weekly poll in the lower right of every page if you're interested). A....
