Furthermore he feels that the crypto-currency is additionally a rare asset.  Therefore its value could be as high as $1 million. He did however, concede that the recent price volatility in the Bitcoin has kept investors away, but strongly believes that traders need to understand that there is endless upside potential, as compared to the few risks.


The BTC/USD finally scaled its resistance zone near the $372 level where it faced tremendous selling pressure over the last couple of days.
