Welcome to “Ask Stacy,” a new video feature on Money Talks News. Most week days, I’m going to answer a money question sent in by a reader or viewer. (Learn how to send in a question of your own below.)
Our inaugural question is about bitcoin.
Bitcoin, a digital medium of exchange, is one of the more popular in a category of investment known as cryptocurrencies; you can read more about them in “Bitcoin for Dummies.”
Bitcoin has been making headlines in recent weeks because its price rise has been meteoric. It’s rocketed from around $700 in January to as high as $20,000 in less than a year.
Too late to get in or time to jump on the bandwagon? Here’s what I think.
