After seeing how bitcoin performs in 2017, some investors are panicking. A section of bitcoin investors is now creating massive debts to buy a digital coin.  Analysts warn that these digital currency ‘maniacs’ are making big mistakes.  In December 2017, bitcoin hits its all-time highest. Before America celebrates Thanksgiving, the coin is at $17, 000. As the festivity unfolds, the altcoin hits $20, 000.

 Reports are going around that people are making crazy decisions. Some are reportedly refinancing their homes. Others are going as far as asking money from lenders. They all have one aim.  They want to invest in a cryptocurrency. A new study by LendEDU, a loan marketplace reveals a lot. The study says that many people who buy digital coins use debit cards.  Advertisement: Visit casinos accepting Bitcoin and other digital currencies at PlaySlots4RealMoney.com

This research says that this group of people comprises 18 percent. What is worse is that 20 percent of these people do not have plans to repay their balances.  For this reason, the phrase ‘buy bitcoin with credit card’ is buzzing on Google. Every person who wants to buy digital coin now wants to use a credit card. Joseph Borg says that he is hearing stories of how people are making sacrifices. Many people who visit his office or call often relate cases where people are sacrificing. The aim is for them to get a cryptocurrency. Borg is the president of North America Securities Administrators Association. Also, this is a voluntary organization whose work is to protect investors. According to Borg, it is going to be difficult for some people to repay their debts. Many people are going to be poor if they are not going to compensate. They risk their properties to auction firms. Joseph says he know of guys who are transferring a part of their money. These people move the money from stocks to mutual funds. 

He also says that he talks to people who go into credit cards. Others are taking out home equity loans on their properties. Joseph says that it is somewhat understandable. He bases his argument on today’s economic situation. He argues that if things go on this way, so many people will suffer. Many people are going to lose their savings.

"We've everyone with the idea that most Americans don't have enough in savings.  It is everywhere that they don't have enough to retire. People want to make it up with anything they can. What else are people chasing right now other than digital coins?” Borg says. Another digital currency analyst says it is becoming a global problem. Investing in risky schemes can leave people with endless debts. Joshua Fairfield, a bitcoin specialist, feels it is a bad hype.  "People are maxing out their credit cards. They think it's going to make them a lot of money. It is right enough that people are now making ever more risky investments," says Joshua. In his final words, Joshua says that people should agree. They should use bitcoin as other ‘uncertain’ investments. He thus warns bitcoin gamblers and investors for making risky decisions.
