Bitcoin gained more than 3 percent today, reaching $ 19,857 and broke the all-time record.
The world’s most widespread cryptocurrency, which has gained over 170 percent since the beginning of the year, broke the record it broke in December 2017 with $ 19,864 on Monday.
Due to the monetary and financial incentives introduced to reduce the negative effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy, the increasing interest in more risky investment tools and the expectations that digital currencies will be accepted more increase the demand for cryptocurrencies.
Bitcoin, which went into circulation 12 years ago, had lost more than 70 percent of its value in two months after its peak in 35 days with a rise of 250 percent in 35 days.
This year, despite following a fluctuating course, Bitcoin, which has the highest market value in the world, maintaining its upward trend, fell back to the level of 19 thousand dollars after reaching the limit of 20 thousand dollars.
