The price of Bitcoin has been rising faster on Chinese exchanges than elsewhere in the world.

Bobby Lee, the chief executive of one of China’s biggest Bitcoin exchanges, BTCC, said that, as was the case in past price spikes, a critical mass of reports on Bitcoin was drawing a new wave of speculators, betting more on the future of the virtual currency than on its current use.

“There are a few tipping points in a row, and you get a tidal wave,” Mr. Lee said. “It’s classic bull market.”"
