Is Bitcoin too volatile and risky to be considered a serious investment? Dr Savvas P Savouri, chief economist and partner at Toscafund Asset Management, says YES. It is not that I simply don’t like bitcoin. I just don’t get what owning it is supposed to provide. There is no yield, it isn’t backed by any credible central bank, and little of what we buy can be purchased using it.

The total market cap for crypto-currencies is currently $150bn. For an outsider looking in, the rise of cryptocurrencies can raise eyebrows. Every other news story talks about a bubble, and the stories frequently compare the market capitalisation of crypto-currencies to current markets. The stories will discuss how ridiculous it is that something based on software with no physical representation can be worth $150bn. They will then throw in mentions of the Dark Web and words such as “fraud” to spook readers into thinking of cryptocurrencies as something used by illegal third parties.

The financial technology (fintech) revolution is partly about – as the name suggests – better technology, which leads to lower costs and better accessibility. But it’s also about the power of the crowd – and one of the best examples of “crowd power” is in social investing and trading. Companies such as Israel-based eToro and US firm Covestor allow you to monitor what other users are doing, then copy their decisions. Their message is simple – why trust the overpaid fund management “experts” instead of ordinary folk with extraordinary gifts?

The bitcoin digital currency is the best-performing asset on the world’s financial markets, hitting another all-time high today, to trade at $2,748, a 10 per cent gain on the day. If you had bought into the cryptocurrency back in August 2015, when the Money Observer bitcoin round-up argued that the currency had bottomed after falling to a comparatively lowly $230 on the Coindesk bitcoin index, you would now be sitting on a return of 1,000 per cent. In ‘coinspeak’, the currency now has a market capitalisation (price x number of coins in circulation) of $44 billion.
