If I had a dollar for every mention of bitcoin nowadays, I’d have enough, well, to buy a good bit of bitcoin.

In keeping with this season of speculation, this week’s report looks at a new market for bitcoin BTCUSD, +5.09% that could potentially tame the “Wild West” trading that has sent this crypto-asset soaring.
