Things we definitely looking promising on Tuesday when the price per bitcoin had gone past the $1000 USD mark at the Mt.Gox exchange. But the excitement, alas, was short lived.
On Wednesday, the bitcoin market saw a small slump, dropping right back past the $1000 mark to a low of $877. At the time of this writing, the price at Mt. Gox is about $944, and $910 at Bitstamp (which is a better metric for the price of bitcoin because traders can actually withdraw USD from bitstamp in a reasonable timeframe).
With that, there’s absolutely no telling where this is going. We’ll keep you updated with market-related news, per usual.
