This is probably the perfect time to buy. Perhaps, next year the Government will approve bitcoin EFT and the price will skyrocket again. For now, you should buy and hold, but always know that there are risks involved. I make profit every time from bitcoin fluctuations, which is quit better. While I hold on to some bitcoins, I trade it versus the USD and other cryptocurrencies at Forexchief broker platform. They have the best spreads and fastest execution.
