On Friday, it fell below $11,000, according to the Coindesk exchange website, before readjusting to about $12,000.

Charles Hayter, founder and chief executive of industry website Cryptocompare, said: “A manic upward swing led by the herd will be followed by a downturn as the emotional sentiment changes.”

The currency’s price at the start of the year was $1,000.

Trading on Friday got so rough that both exchanges, the CME and the CBOE, stopped trading temporarily.

Banks nor the government stand behind the currency and have called it a bad unsecured investment.

Wall Street Mogul, Jordan Belfort told CNBC, The bitcoin “was a huge danger.”

“There’s no regulation on the actual level of bitcoin itself,” he tells CNN’s Richard Quest. “Yeah there’s futures regulation but the underlying asset is completely unregulated. It’s a dark market.”

“I think it’s a huge danger right now that people are looking at this as the next great thing,” he tells CNN Money. “It’s a bubble for sure.”
