The current fair value has been pegged at $38000. According to the latest Coinbase reports, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) has risen 17.35% in the past seven days. 

According to the reports from JPMorgan the currency is overvalued at 13%. The firm also says the biggest hindrance for Bitcoin as it moves forward is its volatility and the bust-and-boom cycles which will resist institutional adoptions.

The report also added that at this rate the total market value of Bitcoin should be at par with that of gold held privately for all investment purposes.
