Bitcoin virtual currency triples in value

The cost of Bitcoin virtual currency has reached another record,  surpassing the mark of $300 during the auction at Mt Gox electronic platform. This afternoon, it rose to 321 dollars per Bitcoin, and then dropped to $311. The previous record was set yesterday - one Bitcoin was worth more than $272.

Over the last week, the price of the Bitcoin grew by 44.6 percent. Experts attribute the rise of the virtual currency with the growing awareness of the brand.

For two weeks, the price of the "new gold" has tripled from 50 to 140 dollars.

Peer to peer payment system Bitcoin was launched in 2009. It uses the virtual currency of the same name. In the spring of 2013, the total volume of Bitcoins reached one billion dollars.

 

 

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
