A few years ago, one of the most popular crypto-currency exchanges on the planet would not be able to function, according to the head of its team.
“It was not an easy time for the team because the price swings were really huge, and the exchange itself was a bit unstable,” said Thomas J. Martin, the former chief financial officer of online marketplace Betfair.
The exchange’s team had to turn to the law to ensure that it would not lose money, but the exchange is now functioning well.
It’s time for another crypto-exchange to survive Bitcoin is trading at $9,000 (€7,500) and $10,000, and at $2,200 (€1,900) and more.
But for many investors, the crypto-coin’s volatility is just too much for them to bear.
In March, Bitfinex, a Tokyo-based bitcoin exchange, was forced to suspend operations after a large amount of bitcoins were seized by authorities in Mexico.
The government of Mexico, which has an extradition treaty with the United States, has claimed that bitcoins have been used to buy drugs and weapons and has said that more than $1 billion worth of bitcoins have already been stolen.
Bitfinex was shut down by the Mexican government after the authorities said they seized $2.2 million worth of the digital currency, which was allegedly used to fund drug trafficking operations.
Bitcoins are a virtual currency that can be exchanged online.
They are not backed by any government and can be traded for any number of other currencies.
Bitcoin, which is also called a virtual commodity, has attracted many investors because of its ease of use and ease of buying and selling.
In the past, the cryptocurrency has seen its price rise and fall on news of large-scale hacks, but Martin said he does not think that will be the case any time soon.
The currency is expected to see a massive rally soon.
Martin told CNBC:”There are a lot of people who would buy it and sell it now, but they won’t buy it in the future.
We will see how much the price goes up and down over time.”
If Bitcoin loses some of its value, Martin said it would be hard to sell his shares because the value of his company is still based on the price of bitcoin.
Martin said he believes that investors would want to buy the currency as a hedge against future price swings.
“They might think they can buy bitcoin in a year’s time when the price is going up,” he said.
