At the end of the trading week, the BTC exchange rate reached 6700 USD/BTC. The entire cryptocurrency market showed confident growth as well.
 
According to NordFX experts, the average price of the world’s first digital currency is now slightly above the mentioned level. This means that the price has gained nearly 3% since Thursday.

One of the local experts published a report where named the reasons why we shouldn’t be buying and using cryptocurrencies. For instance, he thinks that blockchain is an ordinary technology for storing data while cryptocurrencies are just systems for calculating abstract assets. They cannot be seen as real assets since they make money out of thin air, the expert thinks.
