The first cryptocurrency broke the psychologically important mark of $8,000 and continues to grow. At the time of writing, the price of BTC reached $8645.
Bitcoin overcame the previous sign level of $7,000 more than three weeks ago. During this time, the cryptocurrency periodically dropped below this mark, invariably restoring positions.
After April 21, the price fixed above $7000, and a steady growth began. On Thursday, April 23, Bitcoin updated its local maximum after the March collapse, taking the $7,750 mark.
The cryptocurrency market supported the flagship price movement - most of the leading altcoins have grown over the past 24 hours by an indicator comparable to bitcoin. Ethereum confidently overcame the $200 mark, adding the most per day - 6.1%.
