Bitcoin took off. The rate of the world’s main cryptocurrency rose above 55.5 thousand dollars for the first time since mid-May, capitalization exceeded a trillion dollars
Bitcoin continues its ascent after the disastrous September: today, the value of the world’s main cryptocurrency has soared by 2.5 thousand dollars in just five minutes. At the time of this writing, for 1 BTC they give 54.9 thousand dollars, but at the peak the cost rose above 55.5 thousand dollars on the Binance exchange. Bitcoin hasn’t been this expensive since mid-May.
Such rapid growth almost instantly took the capitalization of the world’s main cryptocurrency beyond the $ 1 trillion mark. In general, Bitcoin has risen in price by about 8% over the day, and by an impressive 32% over the week.
The rest of the top 10 cryptocurrencies are traded in different directions. Over the week, everyone has a stable plus, and Ethereum and Dogecoin have grown strongly – by 27% and 28%, respectively, but during the day, the same Dogecoin has minus about 2%.
Analysts note that if Bitcoin can gain a foothold at the $ 55 thousand mark, then further growth will follow to $ 58-60, and then an update of the annual maximum is possible – leaving the $ 65 thousand mark.
