Forbes: Should you invest in bitcoin? 10 arguments in favor as of december 2015

In the past three months alone, the price of Bitcoin has: risen steadily from below $250 to the low- to mid-$300 range, spiked past $400, plunged back down toward $300, stabilized around $325, surged again past $350 around Black Friday, then jumped even higher — after a potential uncovering of Bitcoin’s creator — to about $430 as of this morning.

Taking a wider angle to look at the year, the high, $437 according to Blockchain.info, was about two and half times its low, $177 — and these gyrations don’t even begin to match those seen from 2013 to the beginning of this year, when the price went from the teens to $1,200 and back down toward the $200s.

Though 2015 has proven to be the year that venture capital and Wall Street bet on the blockchain (shorthand for the distributed ledger technology behind Bitcoin), with companies ranging from Goldman Sachs to American Express, from Nasdaq to Kleiner Perkins, investing in such ventures, and VC investment in the sector totaling $314 billion according to Pitchbook, it’s not clear where that leaves the currency.

There has been some movement on Wall Street around it: earlier this year, the New York Stock Exchange launched a Bitcoin index, NYXBT; the Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC), a trust whose shares can be held in IRA, Roth IRA and other brokerage and investment accounts as well as passed on to beneficiaries, began trading; and the Winklevoss twins launched Gemini, a fully licensed and regulated Bitcoin exchange, in early October. They also have in the works an ETF, which, like GBTC, could appeal to institutions, pension plans and 401(k)s that might want exposure to Bitcoin but would not be able to own the currency directly.

These movements indicate big players are gearing up for Bitcoin to become an established part of people’s portfolios, but does that mean you should invest in it?
