Whatever the case is, actually buying Bitcoin isn't difficult, just go to coinbase.com and there you go. But what if you want to trade Bitcoin like it's a stock? There's no ETF yet, but there is a CFD, and most online brokers offer Bitcoin CFD's. If you're unfamiliar with CFD's, it stands for Contract For Difference. In other words, you'll never actually own Bitcoin, but are speculating on its price movement (difference bid/ask). If you think Bitcoin is highly overvalued, or undervalued you can place your bets with a Bitcoin CFD. Think of it as options, though you never own the underlying asset, you can still speculate on its price.
