The strong rise in bitcoin’s value continues. On Tuesday, the oldest and best-known crypto coin reached the mark of 17,000 dollars (14,320 euros) for the first time since the beginning of 2018.
The record level of around 20,000 dollars (16,850 euros) at the end of 2017 is getting closer and closer.
In March, the price reached a low point this year at $3,850 (3,243 euros), but since then the value has only continued to rise.
On the trading platform Bitstamp, 17,162 dollars were asked for a bitcoin on Tuesday at 3.45 pm.
Bitcoin received a boost, in particular, after the Paypal payment platform opened its doors to the crypto coin in October.
