bitcoins may be a mystery for most people but many are intrigued by the crypto currency bitcoins are mind in massive data centers such as here in china the currency only exists online there's no bank or financial institution behind it the cash flows are anonymous and there's little oversight and yet big coin is currently enjoying an unusual run. at the start of this year one bitcoin was worth one thousand dollars but for weeks there's been a lot of hype surrounding its more recent surge in value on wednesday its price reached a record high of over twelve thousand two hundred dollars that means bitcoin has jumped in value by over eleven hundred percent an unparalleled rise. it's even called the attention of the reputable trick cargo commodities exchange which announced plans to begin trading bitcoin futures investors will be able to buy and sell bitcoins at a fixed rate this will make the currency much easier to trade even japan's on board

bitcoin is listed on stock exchange now the once julius cryptocurrency is well on its way to entering the financial mainstream. and if you recognize the voice that was daniel into my colleague and he is back here with me in the studio to tell us a little bit more about bitcoin i'm sure that you've bought some how many have you got i don't know because i lost them. there was a while ago it is unfortunate because apparently a few years ago with the same value that you could get a pizza for in those days you can now buy a house so what would be nice monica like that ok but that way you're still here with us which is good news and there are other investors of course who really making a killing right now i mean how are they reacting to this development well i mean because it is driven by social media so that's where they've been reacting and they've been gloating on the line i'd like to show you some tweets on this actually
12:21 pm
just take this twitter user and investor you a wall. all street try to spent years in school learning the minute finance ten years of one hundred hour workweeks super excited about your ten percent returns this year me a bit corinna read some books some stakes enjoying nine hundred percent returns this year clearly gloating there and to give you an idea about the scale a big charlie below tweets at two hundred four billion dollars because market cap is higher than ninety six percent of the companies in the s. and p. five hundred only twenty one. so it gives you an idea of the scaled there and also being powered by social media means means inevitable and investors feel vindicated this post by to coney i'm on reddit how people saw me when i talked about bitcoin at the start of the year clearly a crazy person and how people see me when it cost ten k. intelligent and sophisticated i think is the idea that trying to get across the way you can blame them they're very happy and gloating as you mentioned as well but i mean how exactly does bitcoin differ from. other commodities or currencies that are
12:22 pm
currently traded why is it successful commodities is really the word there it is more of a commodity than a currency because it isn't stable medium of exchange once it becomes or if it becomes a bit more mainstream and you can go out to your local shop and buy something with declines then you can call it a currency until then it's just too unstable and that will be the thing which seals the fate for better or for worse of because so it will we ever be able to go out to the shop because that's what people ask me a lot you know i mean how do you actually buy something with bitcoin well it's very easy to use the thing is that not many places accept it because they're worried that if they take in because they won't be able to exchange them into dollars or euros which is what they need to pay their taxes so quickly and so if someone like starts accepting bitcoin which has been rumored that would be a game changer then everyone would start buying back cards and start using bitcoins
12:23 pm
online and then you might even see your. local shop accepting it as well all right which see in this amazing rise from one thousand dollars at the start of the year to twelve thousand how much higher can it get is now the time to join the party no i don't really know i mean people smarter than me have said that it is definitely a bubble but when you see that c.m.a. and nasdaq are offering big coin futures when you see that the banking up revolution which is backed by moscow cod is going to be offering bitcoin as well you see it is moving into the mainstream and so it could be the time to invest but then the bubble could bust any moment who knows if anyone then it's daniel winter thank you so much for joining me in the studio. while deutsche bank is complying with a u.s. probe into donald trump's alleged links with russia trans lawyer initially denied investigation has issued a subpoena against the german lender now a source within the bank confirms to the financial times that special counsel
