Mutual Funds Weekly: Bitcoin’s true believers are about to get some cool-handed competition

Don’t miss these top money and investing features:

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, +4.99% that could potentially tame the “Wild West” trading that has sent this crypto-asset soaring. Then, read why gold is unlikely to follow in bitcoin’s footsteps, and what’s in store for folks who are eager to mine this “millennial gold.” Then take a break from bitcoin to read how index funds have drifted from indexing’s original purpose, and watch a video about — what else — bitcoin’s place in a long history of investing manias.
