Kuala Lumpur : It seems, Malaysians are having a seismic shift on where to place their eggs.
And it seems, they have found a new basket, where they feel is safe enough to place some of their eggs in.
Mystock 118 can now reveal the said basket is called Bitcoin, the world’s most accepted digital currency.
Trading volumes of Bitcoin in Malaysia have jumped, as shown in the above chart from coin.dance.
The increased demand for bitcoins in Malaysia is no surprise – countries with weakening economies and loss of faith in the government have always seen people turn to Bitcoin.
This pattern has been repeated in countries ranging from Zimbabwe to Venezuela.
