Hospital launches rehab clinic to treat cryptocurrency addiction
Cryptocurrency trading may be dangerously addictive.
That’s according to a Scottish hospital, which announced this week that it had launched a rehabilitation program for people hooked on trading digital currencies like bitcoin BTCUSD, +3.30% and Ether ETHUSD, +5.79%
“Cryptocurrency users can get hooked by the volatile fluctuation of prices online which creates a ‘high’ when they buy or trade a winning currency,” said Castle Craig Hospital in a news release. “This can be exciting but also addictive and, like gambling addiction, can be financially disastrous.”
