Also rising are the places that trade in bitcoin, such as Coinbase, which is said to be the largest digital exchange for buying and selling bitcoin. Such volatility could trigger trading limits in the futures, though many investors speculate the contracts will improve price discovery.

Why all the concern? Bitcoin's value has seen a boost of 2,000 percent if we take a look back in December 2016. One bitcoin was worth $1,000 in January.
