On the homepage of the specialized site CoinMarketCap there is an advertisement pop-up which invites readers to participate in a contest that leaves no doubt about what is the theme of the moment in the world of virtual currencies. "When will bitcoin reach $ 20?", Asks the site, inviting interested parties to make three predictions, in a contest that offers prizes totaling $ 10. In bitcoin, of course.
