Lack of media and public interest bode poorly for the long-term future of the virtual currency, even though it has regained much of the value it lost in 2014….
But the rest of the world appears to have lost interest.
That’s not great for the long-term use of bitcoin and the fans who want to see it become a widely-used medium of exchange. With the currency currently dependent on notoriously-fickle Chinese retail investors, they would surely swap a gain in global popularity over a short-term rally in value.
Right now, the virtual currency just seems to have lost its “cool.”
