On the good news, Ethereum holders found huge gains as the commonly-considered silver to bitcoin's gold saw record highs.

2017 was, with no doubt, the biggest year for cryptocurrencies.

"It's just digital currency", said Jason Wilson, with L'Argent Services.

"We have, and always will, accept cryptocurrencies for our conferences, up to fourteen days before the event", the organisers said. He points out that Google Trends has identified "Bitcoin" as one of the most popular search terms in Nigeria, Ghana, and South Africa, which are countries with unstable national currencies.
