Bitcoin stronger than ever
Bitcoin fell about 20 percent over the weekend before recovering much of its losses.
After some developers last Wednesday called off an upgrade proposal called SegWit2x, investors began buying “bitcoin cash,” the bitcoin offshoot formed in August.
Another alternative version of bitcoin, “bitcoin gold,” launched Sunday in an effort to make the process of creating, or “mining,” the digital currency less dependent on specialized hardware.
Bitcoin hit record highs after the August split into bitcoin and bitcoin cash.
