Bitcoin resumes upward curve following market disruptions

Bitcoin values have resumed their upward momentum after a DDoS attack on Japanese exchange Mt. Gox and depository hack at Instawallet briefly stalled the digital currency's climb on Wednesday.

Bitcoin values have been soaring since the Easter break, appreciating by more than 50% over two days as the virtual currency hit highs of $147 per coin on Wednesday.

However, a one-hour outage at Mt. Gox and the shuttering of Instawallet following a devastating database hack wiped $35 off the peak price.

By Thursday morning, however, the price had edged back up to $134 on Mt. Gox as the currency continues to seduce speculators and enthusiasts alike.
