Understand why digital currencies matter and how best to advise clients. A $100 investment in Bitcoins in 2010 would be worth over $75 million today. What created this unfathomable explosion in value? Each day over 1,000,000 unique Bitcoin transactions are processed. Companies of all sizes now accept Bitcoins as payment.
