Even some of the biggest supporters of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies recognize the stability of gold.
Last week was a bad week for Bitcoin. It’s price dropped significantly in the wake of a Chinese government crackdown on cryptocurrency exchanges in the country. Bitcoin’s price has recovered a bit this week, but a recent article published by The Cointelegraph still proclaimed now is a good time for gold.
