比特币投资遭遇滑铁卢 本季度缩水超过四成

针对比特币的风险投资在今年一季度达到2.3亿美元的顶峰之后,二季度开始缓慢下降,三季度则下降更多——达到41%。

该数字货币本月初在澳大利亚面临监管障碍,甚至连所谓的“比特币领导者”都不确定其未来前景。

尽管如此,仍有好消息传出。欧洲法院刚作出规定,增值税不适用于比特币兑换,这是该危机四伏的产业的一次小小胜利。

尽管针对比特币的投资在逐年缓慢增加,第三季度的8500万总额仍然是去年三季度7500万美元以来的最低投资额。

相比于一季度的顶峰,二季度的1.45亿美元投资额已经是一次大跳水。但是,如果当前的货币价值可以看作是方向标的话,这个下降趋势恐怕将会继续。

Bloomberg数据显示,截至本月底,比特币产业已获得了10亿美元以上的风险投资。

该数字货币持续成为“SilkRoad”黑市购物网站的头条。8月,一个联邦机构承认其82万美元的比特币被窃。

我们之前报道过前任拳击冠军Mike Tyson打算如何利用比特币的大繁荣来大赚一笔,现在,恐怕他要再次评估这项投资了。

After peaking at close to $230 million in venture capital investments in the first quarter of this year, bets on bitcoin startups, which had already started slowing in Q2, slowed further in Q3 — down 41 percent.

The cryptocurrency most recently faced regulatory hurdles in Australia earlier this month, and even so-called “bitcoin leaders” aren’t sure what the future holds.

In a bright spot, though, the European Court of Justice just ruled that bitcoin currency exchange is not liable to value added tax (VAT), which represents a small win for a space that is facing many challenges.

While investments into bitcoin startups are still up slightly year-over-year, the $85 million they drew in Q3 is the lowest amount of any quarter since Q3 last year, which saw just $75 million.

Investments fell to $145 million in Q2, already a big slump from the Q1 peak. But, if current numbers are any indication, that downward trend seems set to continue.

Bitcoin startups will have raked in more than $1 billion in venture capital funding as of the end of this month, according to data cited by Bloomberg.

The cryptocurrency continues to make headlines in the Silk Road probe, with one federal agent admitting $820,000 worth of bitcoin theft in August.

We also wrote about how former boxing champion Mike Tyson was looking to make a buck off the bitcoin boom — though perhaps he’ll be reassessing that venture now.
