The bitcoin was worth more than $ 40,000 tonight. In less than a month, the value of the cryptocurrency has doubled. The price is now $ 39,000.
The price of Bitcoin has fluctuated a lot in the last few days. The virtual currency has been on the rise especially since mid-December.
The currency only passed the $ 30,000 mark last Saturday. Tonight the price hit a new record of just over $ 40,000. This means that the value of Bitcoin has increased eightfold since March.
According to experts, regulation by governments and central banks has given the currency more authority. In addition, professional investors would also buy Bitcoin to better spread their risks in this corona crisis.
