Bitcoin Price Rises To Highest Level After Almost 3 Years

It’s no wonder why and how Bitcoin has been growing stronger the past few weeks compared to the previous years, especially after the U.S. election. This growth in the demand size of Bitcoin is a reflection on how investors see the economy today. It’s an untold observation of investors, businessmen, or anybody, thinking that they are seeking protection because obviously, they are unsure of their respective country’s economy.

Bitcoin traders are finally moving past the collapse of Tokyo-based digital-currency exchange Mt. Gox.

The price of a single bitcoin US:BTCUSD touched $777 on Friday, its strongest level since February 2014, when reports that hackers had stolen millions of dollars’ worth of customers’ bitcoins from Mt. Gox, formerly one of the world’s largest bitcoin exchanges, sent prices plunging.

Charles Hayter, founder and chief executive officer of Cryptocompare, which provides data and analytics about the digital-currency market, said this most recent price run-up is likely due to a combination of factors: President-elect Donald Trump’s victory in the U.S. presidential election, China’s continuing devaluation of the yuan and worries that Italians might vote “no” in Sunday’s referendum.

What is the future of bitcoin? Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss run a bitcoin exchange on which investors trade on average $1 million in bitcoin per day. But is this cryptocurrency safe or a fad?

Finally, elevated trading volumes in India suggest that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to scrap the country’s 500- and 1,000-rupee notes have also contributed to the increase, Hayter said.

The Mt. Gox hack, which forced the exchange into bankruptcy, raised concerns about lax security in the unregulated digital-currency space, effectively ending an era of exuberance that had sent the price of a single coin to an all-time high near $1,200 just months before.

Bitcoin prices have been steadily rising all year, with investors pointing to the softening Chinese yuan USDCNY, +0.0000%  as the primary culprit.
