Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette and his team sent a research note to clients a few days ago suggesting that the real value of bitcoin might be... $0, according to Business Insider.

The paper (titled "Bitcoin decrypted") did not give a price target for bitcoin, reads the report by Business Insider.
