Will Bitcoin Reach $20,000 This Year?

21 February 2018

Bitcoin’s stunning rebound continued on Tuesday, with the world’s largest digital token extending February’s gains after South Korean regulators signalled they will actively support what they called “normal” cryptocurrency trading.

How Do Bitcoins Work

The move takes Bitcoin to almost double its recent intraday low of $5,922 on Feb. 6, while rival coins also advanced, with Litecoin jumping 9.7 percent. Cryptocurrencies had plunged across the board through much of January amid mounting concern regulators would crack down on the burgeoning industry, but they’ve found an apparent bottom after some well-received Senate testimony from U.S. officials and a more conciliatory tone in South Korea.

“South Korea did not ban Bitcoin,” said Arthur Hayes, Chief Executive Officer of BitMEX, a Seychelles-based peer-to-peer crypto-coin trading platform. “We’ve now gone up almost double in the last few weeks, and I think a lot of this is people coming around to the fact that Bitcoin trading isn’t going anywhere.”
