The price of a Bitcoin, the most important decentralized crypto coin, rose above the $ 25,000 threshold for the first time on Saturday. The Bitstamp trading platform hit the record level of $ 25,022.
On other trading platforms, the record level may differ as there is no centralized Bitcoin trading.
At the beginning of this year, the crypto coin was still worth around $ 8,000. During the first corona wave it fell below USD 4,000 after which the price began to rise again. In autumn things suddenly happened quickly. Its value has more than doubled since mid-October alone.
The virtual currency benefits from the risk appetite of investors.
