The most famous cryptocurrency in the world, of course, Bitcoin continues its upward rally. Now the price of this famous cryptocurrency has recently passed at the mid-end of 2017 the threshold of $5,200 for the first time in three years.
Bitcoin Price Jumps Above $5,200 For First Time
During the month of September, bitcoin suffered a significant fall. Approximately 40% in just two weeks, from about $5,000 to around $3,000. Authorities have more closely surrounded this cryptocurrency and this fueled the possibility that the new correction of its rally would last longer than usual. The bitcoin was deflated in a worrisome way, but now it has beaten its historical record above the $5,200.
The significant drop in this cryptocurrency also had to do with China’s decision to close trading platforms in the Asian market. There it was prohibited the financing with the issuance of bitcoins, and that caused that the virtual currency was resented.
In addition, meanwhile, Western regulators issued warnings of the speculative component of this cryptocurrency. However, after only a few weeks, and after standing at $3,200.
Bitcoin sets new roof: over $5,200 is its new historical record
Now it is little below the $5,200, but this is the value that oscillates during the day in which, positioning above this amount, has set a new historical record. Not only has everything been recovered, but also with this increase of more than 60% in less than a month has reached a new growth of over 400% since the beginning of the year.
This, on the other hand, now places the bitcoin at four times more than the price of the ounce of gold. That is why it is precise, because some people have been calling the bitcoin ‘the gold of the 21st century’.
The volatility of bitcoin remains extreme, so those claims are risky and exaggerated. In addition, the speculative profile of investments in bitcoins makes it an asset with significant risk.
This latest escalation has come amid rumors about the possible reopening of China’s trading platforms. It would appear that a tougher control framework for combating money laundering would be emerging in the country. China is fundamental for bitcoin because there was reached more than 90% of virtual currency trading.
