It took bitcoin less than three weeks to break its own ATH of $67,000 and set a new one at nearly $69,000. Ethereum followed suit and painted a new record as well, while Cardano has gained the most from the larger-cap alts with a 12% surge.
Just three days ago, the primary cryptocurrency struggled at around $60,000, and the community wondered if it will be able to remain above that level for long.
However, a lot can change in the market for three days. Instead of dipping below $60,000, bitcoin went on the offensive and started to gain value rapidly.
As reported yesterday, BTC skyrocketed by several thousand dollars and reached $66,000. It was inches away from breaking its record at $67,000. After spending some time below that line, it finally did so and charted a new peak at $68,600 (on Bitstamp).
