Newsblocks, Issue 14

We're wishing all our readers a very Happy New Year and all the best in 2017!

We’re back with more news and Bitcoin making headlines in mainstream media. 

Bitcoin was the best-performing currency of 2016 and has started 2017 with a bang. Its value has hit more than $1,000 for the first time since 2013. This was followed by a sharp drop of about 20% in most exchanges, with some signs of recovery emerging.
