@JeezusChrist Bitcoinwisdom is pretty good for seeing high and low prices.

@donaldtrump... Where can you see all prices. On Bitstamp I see one # per day but no $607

@BitcoinGirl The price volatility is: Highest price during August - Lowest price during August. So far, the volatility is $45.30 ($607.20 - $561.90), but there's no telling how high it will go until the end of this month. The price could go way up or way down, either of which would increase the volatility. See last month's version of this bet for reference:

That's is blond rather than blind. Can't handle my auto correct either.

Can you explain how this gets calculated. I think highest price in August was $607 and currently trading at $566 so that is a difference of $41? Sorry but I am blind ;-)
