Currently, there is relatively small use of bitcoin in the retail and commercial marketplace in comparison to relatively large use by speculators, thus contributing to price volatility that could adversely affect an investment in bitcoin. In order to participate in the trading of bitcoin, you should be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the investment and be able to bear the economic risk of losing your entire investment.
