The value of the most popular cryptocurrency, bitcoin, has jumped to record highs in the past few months. According to CoinMarketCap, by the morning of Monday, September 6, the price of bitcoin was $ 51.63 thousand per coin – the maximum since May 2021.
The price of the main cryptocurrency reached a record peak in April. Then the cost of bitcoin exceeded 65 thousand dollars, but then the price sharply declined: in July, the cost of bitcoin fell below 30 thousand dollars. By the end of August, the cryptocurrency again surpassed the psychological mark of $ 50 thousand apiece.
CoinDesk analysts attribute the current growth to the situation in global markets and the general interest of investors in risky assets against the backdrop of rising major stocks.
Earlier in September, former US President Donald Trump called the investment in cryptocurrency “a potential disaster.” According to him, investments in cryptocurrency “harm the American economy”, he also urged citizens to keep funds in dollars. According to Trump, it is the dollar that should become “the main currency of the world,” and the cryptocurrency “may turn out to be a fake.”
