Today’s Chart: Bitcoin Bubble Bursting?

Bitcoin, which is the first peer-to-peer digital currency, garnered some serious buzz among traders and investors.  Some supporters say the currency offers major advantages over existing currencies because the system can avoid hefty bank fees and government regulations.

Although the currency started off with a bang… the value of Bitcoin’s currency has taken a serious nose-dive since June 2011.

“Bitcoin, the world’s first peer-to-peer digital currency, fell below $3 on Monday. That represents a 90 percent fall since the currency hit its peak in early June.”

My advice?  Stay away from risky, speculative investments like new digital currencies.

Who knows what the real downside is on these tough-to-value assets.
