The year 2014 is no doubt the worst year for anyone to invest in Bitcoin. However are some small amount of users sell short, meaning they buy high but making a bet that it will down and sell it to make money. Yes that is possible through some Exchange business, unfortuantely Bitstamp and Coinbase are not among them, no such thing as buy high sell low.
2014 at the beginning of the year, Bitcoin was about $700 to $800, then it start slipping lower and lower. As of now today, almost end of year 2014, Bitcoin dropped to the 290s and it’s not the end yet. Speculation saying it will drop even lower toward 2015. However there are some folks that believe Bitcoin will be better in 2015, if not then Bitcoin probably doomed, it cannot drop 2 years in a row, that is bad for any business especially in the investments sectors; if it will happen then most likely no one will ever invest in Bitcoin again and it will simply died. Bitcoin can recover if there are good developments or good marketing strategies such as consumers start using Bitcoin, business start accepting Bitcoins. Apparently it’s sad to say, not today; an ATM Bitcoin machine placed in a popular high traffic New York city had barely 10 transactions for the whole year of 2014, that is how not so popular bitcoin is.
