Bitcoin in digital currency hit a new record high on Monday. The currency rose more than 7 percent on Monday, surpassing the previous high hit in December 2017. One bitcoin is now worth $ 19,577, which is $ 66 more than three years ago.
Bitcoins and other crypto coins have been on the rise for quite some time. This year, for example, Bitcoin was already worth more than one and a half times as much. The coins became increasingly popular because large companies like PayPal showed more interest in them. This raises hope that cryptocurrencies will become more interesting for the general public.
