Bitcoin price suddenly jumps to two-month high as experts debate whether it’s ‘digital gold’

THE price of bitcoin has rocketed to its highest level since November last year, reaching above £6,613 ($8,600) for the first time this year. The hike comes as experts debate whether bitcoin has become a form of “digital gold”. Gold is considered a so-called safe haven asset, meaning it’s popular among investors during times of economic and political turbulence.
