The bitcoin's growth in the value continues. On December 27, on the Coindesk trading platform, which specializes in cryptocurrency trading, the cost of bitcoin exceeded $ 27,000. This is reported according to the data of the online platform.
According to the site, one unit of cryptocurrency is now worth $ 27,800 thousand, which is the highest price ever for Bitcoin. However, the rate of this digital currency on other sites may differ, since there is no centralized system for electronic trading in bitcoin.
Note that at the beginning of the year, the cost of this cryptocurrency was about $ 8,000, then in March, during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, it dropped to less than $ 4,000. Subsequently, the rate of this cryptocurrency began to grow gradually, which accelerated significantly in the fall. Only since mid-October, the bitcoin rate has more than doubled.
In November, for the first time in three years, its exchange rate exceeded the $ 18,000 mark, and on December 16, for the first time in history, it crossed the $ 20,000 threshold.
Bitcoin is an electronic cryptocurrency used to exchange for goods or services from merchants who agree to accept it. It was created in 2008 by an anonymous mathematician or group of mathematicians.
