Bitcoin Price Today: Latest Updates As Cryptocurrency Hits All-Time High


Bitcoin crashed over the weekend to below $ 34,000, after hitting a new high last week above $ 42,000.

The latest price stays up when put into context with the past few weeks and months, with the price steadily rising over the past nine months, dropping from less than $ 5,000 last March.

Other major cryptocurrencies, including ethereum (ether), litecoin, and bitcoin cash, have also seen massive gains in recent months, with some analysts predicting it may still be just the earliest stages of a major bull run.
The last major bull run in 2017 saw the price of bitcoin jump from a few thousand dollars to around $ 20,000, but it was followed by a painful correction.
The notoriously volatile market is prone to sharp moves, as was demonstrated earlier this week when bitcoin fell around $ 6,000 in the space of a few hours.

Expert feedback

We reached out to market analysts and cryptocurrency experts to get their take on the latest breach of the latest $ 40,000 milestone.

Bitcoin smashing $ 40,000 proves the Covid crisis is powerful enough to change the monetary order in place. The new all-time high is palpable proof of a major social conversion – a metamorphosis from a dollar-dominated economy to blockchain-based, deflationary and unlimited finance.

Antoni Trenchev, co-founder and CEO of Nexo

The US $ 40,000 mark is the latest in a series of benchmarks that testify to the confidence building in Bitcoin as more and more people recognize it as a reliable alternative store of value to that used for decades. generations. .

Some estimate that the value of all the money in the world is around $ 90 trillion. The more people feel that their assets, especially their cash such as fiat currencies, are eroding, the more they will look for alternatives.

Geoff Morphy, President of Bitfarms

Bitcoin hitting $ 40,000 is a historic milestone in a series of several recent historic milestones.

Not long ago, people wondered whether bitcoin could compete with or replace gold as a store of value. Now, a number of institutions are actually choosing bitcoin over gold. In turn, this created a network effect propelling the adoption into exhaust speed.

We must continue to be aware that BTC and other cryptocurrencies are volatile assets. On January 4, BTC fell 17% in one day, but quickly recovered and has now hit the $ 40,000 mark. This is just one of the many examples where BTC quickly recovered from a sharp drop in price, indicating that we are probably only at the beginning of a long upward price path. term.

On the way to surpassing Apple and Google?

As bitcoin continues to trade at near record highs, market analysts and cryptocurrency experts have shared their reaction to the latest price movements with us.
Here’s what they have to say:

The king of crypto is set to outperform the market caps of Apple, Google and Facebook.

The rush of institutional investors into the fray with Bitcoin buy orders is a blatant recognition of the quantum leap that Bitcoin technology represents.

Paolo Ardoino, CTO of Bitfinex

The price of Bitcoin rose with only a few short interruptions for three consecutive weeks.

I think bitcoin hasn’t given it everything yet. The coin’s past behavior indicates that the cycle is still far from over and I expect bitcoin to not only return to previous highs, but to reach $ 50,000 by the end of this quarter. .

At the end of the year, I expect the coin to be around $ 90,000.
