Bitcoin holds biggest event of the year for setting a new price record!
The bitcoin and wider blockchain world is gathered in New York for the annual Consensus conference, an industry confab organized by trade publication CoinDesk.
On May 22, the day of the event, the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index pegs it at $2,230.
Blockchain tech was meant to be the grown-up version of the freewheeling, anarchic, bitcoin scene that it descended from.
Etherum, the second most valuable cryptocurrency on the market, with more powerful computational features than bitcoin, is setting records too.
Indeed, one speaker remarked on stage that everyone at the conference seemed more interested in ethereum than bitcoin this year.
