Bitcoin Price Tears Past $5400 — Newsflash

Bitcoin Price Tears Past $5400 — Newsflash

Beijing's crackdown saw bitcoin's price plunge some 40 percent before recovering, the latest move in its rollercoaster existence which began in 2009, when it was worth just a handful of cents.

Not content with hitting above $5,000, bitcoin price has now shattered past the ceiling with a new all-time high.

What are your expectations from the ongoing Bitcoin boom? This was a huge setback to the industry which led to around 30% fall in the bitcoin prices in a matter of a few days.

So what explains Bitcoin's rise?

The virtual currency is created through blockchain technology, which publicly records transaction details including the unique alphanumeric strings that identify buyers and sellers - technology which is gaining increasing currency among banks and companies.

The coach said the players are the future of Guinea and they have gained some valuable experience from the tournament. Guinea, who had more possession overall in the game equalized in the 26th minute.

Week-on-week, BTC is up 18.75 percent, while month-on-month it's up 23 percent. Legal and logistical barriers make it hard to sell a newly created cryptocurrency for conventional currencies like dollars or euros. It started the year at "just" $966 and quickly spiked to more than $3,000 by June. A higher number indicates greater price volatility with 50 describing an average day. We expect the prices to reach the first target of $5200 and then proceed towards the $5500 mark and then we can expect some consolidation as the market awaits the hard fork next month.

Customers who want to get their Bitcoin, Ethereum and/or Litecoin like this should know that instant purchases have a maximum limit of $25,000 - though Coinbase says that their individual limit may differ, depending on their account type presumably.

A final factor driving Bitcoin's growth: increasing interest from mainstream financial institutions.

While Bitcoin is far and away the largest cryptocurrency, 11 other coins have a market cap in excess of $1 billion, reflecting increasingly diverse trading options.
