The leading digital currency bitcoin (BTC) is up over 4% on the day, trading at $8,135 at press time after reaching above $8,200. Earlier today, bitcoin dropped under the $8,000 price point to trade as low as $7,807. On its weekly chart, bitcoin saw its lowest price point at $5,942 on May 8, while its highest price point was $8,265 on May 14.

Today, Erik Voorhees, CEO of instant cryptocurrency exchange platform ShapeShift, argued that the volatility seen in bitcoin and altcoin markets over the years is a necessary phenomenon for a nascent asset, stating that bubbles are an essential part of the industry’s growth.
