One of the incentives for the growth of Bitcoin could be the news that the Tesla company Ilona Mask invested more than $1.5 billion in cryptocurrency. Also in the future, the company will accept cryptocurrency to pay for goods and services.

What will happen to Bitcoin next - no one knows. Some analysts reported that cryptocurrency was revalued at the rate of $30 thousand, while others predicted growth up to several hundred thousand dollars. But a sharp collapse, as at the end of 2017, has not yet happened, but the growth rate has also noticeably decreased.
