As the bit coin spreads, lowering the practicality of delays in settlement speed and sharp rise in transaction fees has become a problem. In order to solve this problem, necessity of version update by soft fork / hard fork has been studied . According to the version upgrade, in order to avoid the worst result of "loss of bit coins on hand" accompanying a decline in price due to bit coin division and system shutdown, the bit coin price plummets every time a split riot occurs It is a regular pattern. The pattern that the price bought back again every time the division crisis is avoided rises above the pre-plunge pattern is recorded three times even within 2017, and already the "rule of division is a sign of rising market price" rule of thumb It is a situation that is being produced.

The future of the price of bit coin, which financial market such as Wall Street is becoming a huge market that can not be ignored seems to have entered an area that nobody can predict.
