Bitcoins: Only up from here, or just another wave?

At about 64 Thousand rand a unit, the bitcoin has taken business by storm. The Money Show's Bruce Whitfield interviewed RMB's Farzam Ehsani on the rise of the cryptic currency and whether it is here to stay.

"There are thousands of cryptic currencies and right now they are valued collectively today at about $140 Billion US Dollars and the bitcoin accounts for about 60% of that."
