CryptoCurrently: How Virtual Currencies Went from Mania to Mainstream

Cryptocurrencies continue to be a subject of heated debate. Crypto's collective market capitalization surpassed $5 billion dollars in 2017, a 22-fold increase from the year before. Still, the industry remains highly volatile; the value of Bitcoin, for one, collapsed by more than 50% at the start of 2018. The security of virtual currencies and e-wallets remains in a precarious state; 56 cyber attacks have resulted in over $1.6 billion in losses since 2011. How are crypto technologies expected to evolve? Will cryptocurrencies revolutionize global financial markets and digital infrastructure? How can companies who seek to venture into this industry find a semblance of stability amidst extreme uncertainty?
