Bitcoin Is Still in Its Infancy ?
As a means of exchange, gold has been used for a very long time. As such, it is a reasonably stable commodity, as far as price, demand, and supply go. Likewise, fiat currency has been around for some time—while exchange rates between countries fluctuate and are somewhat volatile, their values are to a point predictable based on the issuing country and the economic circumstances it faces.
Bitcoin has only been around for a short time—it is still in the price discovery phase. This means that prices will continue to change as investors, users, and governments work through the initial growing pains and concerns until prices stabilize—if a stable point can be reached.
Why Does BTC Fluctuate so Much?
Bitcoin's price fluctuates because it is influenced by supply and demand, investor and user sentiments, government regulations, and media hype. All of these factors work together to create price volatility.
How High Can Bitcoin's Price Go?
It's rare to watch cryptocurrency news and not see an investor or fan's opinion of how high Bitcoin's price will get. Unfortunately, it is unknown how high or low the cryptocurrency's price will go.
