I see it all as hype to increase the activities of the speculators in order to increase the value of Bitcoin. It has been slowly descending in value since the demise of the Mt. Gox exchange, which was manipulating the price.

Bitcoin is ripe with scandal, thefts and its association with illegal activity. IMO, buying Bitcoin for the purpose of capital gains would be a big mistake.

Another price spike like the one that occurred in the later half of 2013 is very unlikely because with numerous exchanges, it is very unlikely that they all will get together to manipulate the price.
