After the rodeo last week, when the cost of Bitcoin in two days increased by more than $ 5 thousand, this week there was a relative lull. Trades were held in the corridor from $ 15 thousand to $ 17.5 thousand.
But this relative calm did not last long. Already on Saturday, the bitcoin rate overcame the $ 19,000 threshold and reached $ 19,500. On Sunday, the rise in the price of the crypto currency resumed, resulting in a psychologically important $ 20,000 mark. According to the Coinmarketcap resource, the cost of Bitcoin set a new record for mark $ 20089 for one cryptonet. Accordingly, the capitalization of the crypto currency reached $ 326 billion. Then a small pullback followed the level of $ 19.6 thousand.
Recall that at the end of last month – November 28 – the price of Bitcoin broke for the first time at $ 10 thousand. Thus, in less than 3 weeks, the value of the crypto currency increased by the next $ 10 thousand.
For one day – December 6 – the price of Bitcoin has overcome the $ 12 thousand limit, per unit, and closer to the evening – $ 13 thousand.
Over the next day – December 7 – bitcoin took three new records of the value in steps of $ 1000: $ 14 thousand, $ 15 thousand and $ 16 thousand.
At the end of last month – November 28, the cost of bitcoin overcame the boundary of $ 10,000. Two days earlier, on November 26, the Bitcoin exchange rate exceeded the $ 9000 mark, while the $ 8000 limit was overcome on November 17 and $ 7000 on November 2. Two weeks before that, on October 20, a line of $ 6,000 was taken, and a little earlier, October 12, $ 5,000. This was preceded by the capture of two more records in August: $ 3000, and then $ 4000.
