As of now, the price has more than 18,000 US dollars, is expected to continue rising in the coming days.n
More and more people want a slice of bitcoin’s surge, and as a result, the market value of the digital currency has ballooned to record highs, even exceeding Visa’s market capitalization. At the time of writing, the market value of Visa was 252.74 billion U.S. dollars, eclipsed by a market capitalization of 303 billion U.S. dollars. Compared with the same time a week ago, this figure rose nearly 73%. For Bitcoin, which many experts mock for “bubbles” and “fraud,” these numbers do not seem like bad, right?n
