Bitcoin plummets $200 in 4 hours then recovers to fresh record in wild trading that serves as a cautionary tale

Bitcoin's meteoric rise took a hit overnight as the digital currency erased, then mostly recovered, about $200 in 12 hours.

The swing highlights how volatile the cryptocurrency can still be, even as some investors believe bitcoin can one day be a viable alternative to safety assets such as gold.
