Another Day, Another Thousand Dollars: Bitcoin Hits $15k

Bitcoin has passed $15,000 and one mln rubles in its latest landmark against fiat.

Bitcoin has advanced $1,000 higher in what is becoming an almost daily occurrence for the virtual currency.

Data from Coinmarketcap shows an average exchange price of $15,200 at press time Thursday, marking an astounding advance of over $6,000 in less than a week.

Wide spreads on exchanges due to volatility accompanying wild upticks means many exchanges are trading $500 or more below Coinmarketcap’s rating.

As an example, currently the difference in the price of one BTC on Bitfinex and Coinbase is over $1,000 at $14,250 and $15,400 respectively.

New all-time highs now come and go in the blink of an eye as Bitcoin adds $1,000 of value every day, beating even more optimistic short-term forecasts from the likes of Max Keiser.

Not just USD, but other currencies are also seeing milestones, such as Russia’s ruble today, now trading at 1,000,000:1 versus BTC.

New price predictions are now hard to form, with regular commentators instead advising new investors to educate themselves on cryptocurrency or simply plumping for memes.

 

Meanwhile, across altcoins markets assets have taken significant losses as Bitcoin outstrips their growth, even losing USD value as money pours into BTC.
