Bitcoin (BTC) prices hit a fresh record today, surpassing $55,000 as the cryptocurrency continued its strong, upward movement.
Bitcoin, which recently surpassed a market capitalization of $1 trillion, reached $55,707.21 this afternoon, according to CoinDesk data.
The digital currency has been rising to increasingly impressive all-time highs, having already dwarfed the previous record price level of nearly $20,000 set in 2017.
Michael Conn, CEO of Zilliqa Capital, stated the following:
“I believe that increased general awareness and institutional demand, alongside growing retail focus on the asset class is creating upward pressure and momentum on the price.”
“This feels more like a true store of value play, and less of a FOMO story, in my opinion,”
“I think this will continue as the year progresses, with $100-200k by year end being achievable,”
Jeffrey Wang, head of the Americas for Amber Group, also offered his perspective:
“Strong institutional demand along with very few willing sellers is giving us this one way price action,” he stated.
I for one believe that institutional demand and the spillover from the Wall Street Bets crisis may be behind this strong move.
We are here for the ride! Stay tuned…
