I cannot believe this: BTC reaches to $20,000/coin! Apparently, between Wall Street getting in on the action, and Lightning Network, prices shot up to an astonishing rate.  

At the start of the year, it was valued at about $970/coin, which is impressive enough, considering it’s “just code.” And before one rags on bitcoin as being useless, remember that fiat currency is likewise, based on nothing. The USD was backed by silver & gold, as supposed to be, according to the US Constitution, and that Congress is supposed to handle the money, but all of that hasn’t been the case for the better (or worse) part of 100 years, give or take.
