Bitcoin started out the year at $1000 before reaching $5000 half way through the year, but it met some resistance once it reached the $7000-ish range and then it has really just been jumping up in leaps and bounds. There are plenty blown away at it hitting $10K, while others call for its doom. No matter what, even if it does drop to $5000 overnight, BTC has reached this new milestone and you can't take that back.

Blockchain technology and cryptocurrency are here to stay and they're years early, which is why there's this huge interest and hype around them. We might not see Bitcoin accepted everywhere yet, but that's what millions of people said in the cash world about credit. The same people said smartphones and the internet wouldn't change the world, and look at us now. We have 'invisible' money on our tap-and-go credit cards and NFC-enabled payments with smartphones.

Cryptocurrency is the next logical step, but the blockchain technology behind it is what will usher in a completely new world order in financial markets.
