Bitcoin topped $23,000, for the first time in history. The cryptocurrency has gained +220% this year.
The digital coin surged more than +9% on Thursday, reaching $23,256.92. Scott Minerd, the chief investment officer at Guggenheim Investments, said on Bloomberg TV on Wednesday that Bitcoin’s scarcity coupled with “rampant money printing” by the Federal Reserve mean the digital currency should eventually rise to about $400,000.
Dan Gunsberg, CEO of Hxro, a crypto trading platform commented that if Bitcoin sustains its momentum, then “testing $36,000 will be the next real objective” . But he also cautioned that a significant break below $13,800 would lead to a much weaker period for the coin.
