PaddyPower has started to accept bets on the Bitcoin rate, which will be posted on bitcoincharts.com on December 31, 2017. The prerequisite for the launch of this rate was the increase in the value of Bitcoin, which reached $ 2,000 on May 20 and exceeded the historic maximum set in November 2013 – $ 1.2 thousand per 1BTC.
Bookmakers accept bets with odds of 2 that on December 31, 2017, the cost of 1 BTC will be $ 1,000 – $ 2 thousand. Slightly less is the likelihood that 1 BTC in December will cost $ 1,000 or less, as well as from $ 2001 to $ 3 thousand. For such rates for cryptocurrency, the odds are 4. The analysts of the office estimate the chance of the Bitcoin price growth to the amount exceeding $ 3 thousand with odds of 6.
This year, the value of the crypto currency has increased by more than 100 %, during March-May, Bitcoin’s price increasing by 125%, from $ 891.51 to $ 2 thousand.
