On Wednesday, by far the largest cryptocurrency in terms of market share rose to more than $ 35,000 for the first time. A high of $ 35,879 was recorded on the Bitstamp trading platform. This clearly exceeded Monday’s latest record high.
Bitcoin has been setting new records for some time. Over the year, its rate has more than quadrupled. Last year, the digital currency, invented a good decade ago, was one of the investments with the world’s largest price gains.
Opinions on Bitcoin continue to differ widely. Supporters see digital currencies like Bitcoin not only as pioneering technologies, but also use the Internet currencies as an object of speculation and increasingly as a hedge against fluctuations in the exchange rate of other financial investments. Critics, on the other hand, see a financial bubble and complain, among other things, of the sometimes extreme price fluctuations of Bitcoin and other crypto currencies.
