Mike Townsend, Brian Roemmele and Faisal Khan turn to the subject of bitcoin, discussing its recent upsurge in value and asking whether it’s the real deal.

This week, me and my co-hosts, Brian Roemmele and Faisal Khan, are back on the air discussing the proverbial $64m question: Is bitcoin a bubble (or is this the real deal)? For the last couple of years, bitcoin has seen almost no sharp rise, until this year – from August onwards, the price of bitcoin has skyrocketed.

Famed economists tell us we’re in a bubble. Investment experts tell us we are in a bubble. But are we in a bubble? Tune in and listen to three different viewpoints on the bitcoin and bubble argument.
