The Bitcoin GRAT

A new funding source—if the grantor has a healthy tolerance for risk

On Jan. 1, 2013, a single bitcoin would have cost you a little over $13. Presuming you didn’t spend it on a pizza in the meantime, by early December 2013, your bitcoin would have increased in value by over $1,000, only to fall back to around $400 by the middle of April 2014 (then shooting back up to around $650 by early June).
