A tumultuous couple of months for bitcoin saw the cryptocurrency hit a new all-time high before losing more than half its value in a spectacular crash that rippled through the market.

Its volatile price movements have been mirrored by other leading cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum (ether), Cardano (ada) and Binance Coin.

To help make sense of this chaotic time, The Independent has invited two experts to provide insight and offer their forecasts for the space.

Dr Paul Ennis, an assistant professor at University College Dublin whose research focusses on cryptocurrency, and Fred Schebesta, a crypto advocate and founder of comparison platform Finder.com, will join us.

They will give readers of TheIndependent an opportunity to ask anything they like about bitcoin and the crypto space.
