/UCW/ NEW YORK, NY – Bitcoin price continued to recover on Thursday after the price took a recent dive due to the, “hard fork” that happened on Tuesday. According to data from CoinDesk, Bitcoin rose 3.6 percent to $5940.83 during Thursday’s trading session. Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, went through a hard fork on Tuesday and a new cryptocurrency called bitcoin gold was created. This is the second split for Bitcoin. In July, Bitcoin split into bitcoin and bitcoin cash. Safiri Felix, a researcher at financial publisher Empiricus, told CoinDesk: “I think that forks and airdrops as a trend to launch new tokens will continue, aiming to get an instant user base. Best case scenario, bitcoin gold is a potential contender for litecoin.” Chineseinvestors.com, Inc. (OTC: CIIX), BTCS Inc. (OTC: BTCS), Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSTK), Bitcoin Services, Inc.

According to a CNBC report, the billionaire co-founder of PayPal Peter Thiel believes that bitcoin is underestimated. “I do think people are a little bit … underestimating bitcoin especially because … it’s like a reserve form of money, it’s like gold, and it’s just a store of value. You don’t need to use it to make payments,” Thiel said at the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, “If bitcoin ends up being the cyber equivalent of gold it has a great potential left.”
