Hype inflates Bitcoin
I would give that distinction to a certain cryptocurrency that is quickly making its name and fortune: Bitcoin.
Bitcoin has all the attributes of a bubble in the making.
Buyers and sellers of Bitcoin can trade anonymously, which makes the digital currency a favorite of criminals and hackers demanding ransom.
An investment in Bitcoin has returned a breathtaking 351 percent annually since its inception in July 2010 through Tuesday.
To put that in perspective, an investment of $100 in Bitcoin from the beginning would be worth close to $3 million today.
