Bitcoin is actually ‘in’ this year, and its price has risen to $8000 already. If we look at it on the whole, its prices will double this year.
During late 2017, Bitcoin prices rose to about $20,000. While this is a massive drop from that year to now, Bitcoin prices are now strengthening.
In a recent wave, Bitcoin prices crashed but they seem to be rising right now.
According to a Managing Director of a UK based firm, eToro, negative news is not having any kind of impact on the Bitcoin yet. This is the reason why Bitcoin prices have increased to $8,000. Before this, it was consistent at $6,000.
One of the main users of Bitcoin is the Chinese. While Bitcoin wont reach new highs of $20,000, we can say it is ‘catching up’.
In a recent report, National Alliance Securities Andy Brenner said that it is unsure as to whom the direct flows are coming from and who exactly and essentially is buying the Bitcoin. It looks like Chinese investors are going for digital currency to diversify. It is again the Chinese trying to get their hands on Bitcoin and so its prices have risen to $8,000.
According to a popular crypto currency website, CoinDesk, Bitcoin prices topped to about $8,325 before it gave up certain gains. Moreover, Bitcoin prices have risen by over 120%.
The recent increase in Bitcoin prices has coincided with the Chinese Yuan and the dollar. So the Bitcoin now stands at $8,000 but few weeks ago, it was valued at $6,000.
