People’s Bank of China has released a Chinese financial report in 2013,pointing that bitcoin is not currency in real sense .Bitcoin is a speculation tool rather than payment tool on physical economy .So bitcoin owners are willing to collect bitcoin rather than buy other goods .The public lacks enough understanding in bitcoin .Meanwhile ,some people buy bitcoin for speculation or hype ,which may lead to risks .
According to the report ,bitcoin develops rapidly since 2009.At the beginning of 2013,bitcoin price was only 13 dollars ,while on April it was over 100 dollars ,and its highest price was more than 1000 dollars on December .
Bitcoin quickly development raises the thought to virtual currency .Some body say that bitcoin appearance is an enormous challenge to currency system ,even say it will be future gold .

I'm pretty certain that these "risks" can be nullified as long as the cryptocurrency community is supportive and growing. Then again, I have noticed China's attitude towards cryptocurrencies quite unfavorable.
Interesting post btw, we can evidently see more of what is coming next.
