A Bitcoin trader claims cryptocurrency will become an everyday, normal way of paying for goods and services.

The price of Bitcoin has exploded in the past few days, with one equalling nearly NZ$25,000.

My Bitcoin Saver founder Sam Blackmore told Mike Hosking many people are confused by it because they're trying to understand all the technical aspects of the currency.

"In the future they won't need to understand exactly how mining works. They will just have a good trust in the system, that it's there and it supports them in the same way that our currency does today."
