Scottish hospital is ready to treat cryptocurrency addicts

Castle Craig Hospital, a residential rehab center treating alcohol, drug, behavioral and gambling addictions is now treating crypto-addiction within its gambling program, according to the hospital’s website. The volatile highs and lows and the compulsive need to check on the price of cryptocurrency or make trades can turn into an all-consuming addiction, with the ups and downs affecting a person’s life and potentially having a disastrous impact on their finances, according to the clinic’s news release. Digital currency had a wild run last year, with bitcoin going from $900 to an all-time high of $20,000. It has since plunged to around $7,000 and has been on a losing streak over the past three weeks. Yet some Wall Street traders with portfolios full of digital assets are even quitting their high-paying traditional finance jobs to trade cryptocurrencies full-time.
