Bitcoin broke the $ 18,000 barrier today, Wednesday, to reach its highest levels since December 2017, continuing its great rise in 2020, supported by demand for its nature, which is considered a hedge against inflation and expectations for a general trend to accept.
The main and largest cryptocurrency jumped to $ 18,483, and was up 2 percent in the latest transactions. It has climbed nearly 160 percent this year and has jumped 17 percent in the past three days alone.
Bitcoin is now close to its all-time high at just under $ 20,000, which it touched at its peak in 2017 with the support of individual investors.
