Bitcoin Tops Record $19K, Falls Back Down

These exchanges will rely on prices from the likes of Gemini and Coinbase for their derivatives contracts.

That said, there are often significant price differentials on different bitcoin exchanges.

A spokesman for Coinbase said price movements as high as 20% within a few hours aren't uncommon for digital currencies, and that price fluctuations on other exchanges were similar in magnitude.

On Coinbase's GDAX exchange, for example, the price of bitcoin is trading above $18,400.00 as of press time. At 4:08 p.m. NY time, the cryptocurrency traded at $16,362.99.

The latest swing higher came as bitcoin topped $12,000 Tuesday night in a rapid recovery from a 20 percent drop last week.

In regard to South Korea's bitcoin frenzy, Bloomberg reported on the same day that South Korea accounts for a mere 1.9 percent of the global economy but it took up a whopping 21 percent of the total bitcoin transactions around the world as of the 6th.

Cryptocurrency exchanges, which don't have the industrial infrastructure of traditional exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq, are under pressure to handle record trading volumes.

The exchange was down for about an hour on Friday, two days after a major system outage kept many users from accessing their bitcoin wallets. JPMorgan Chase Jamie Dimon has called bitcoin a "fraud". Digital currency investor and former Fortress hedge fund manager Michael Novogratz also said last week that cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are "going to be the biggest bubble of our lifetimes". The price of bitcoin was some 1 million won (US$914) early this year but it has taken an upturn at a rapid pace to reach almost 200 million won (US$18,273) after surpassing 100 million won (US$9,137) on November 26.
