Bitcoin’s Price Crosses $7,000 To Reach All-time High

Two years back, looking at the Bitcoin prices, it was hard to believe that this cryptocurrency would cross $5,000 in near future. Today, the prices are increasing at an exponential pace and creating new records every fortnight. As per the latest update, Bitcoin has crossed the $7,000 mark and created a new record.

As per the data of Coinbase Bitcoin Price Index, Bitcoin is currently trading $7,231. This development has taken place about a little more than two weeks after the prices touched $6,000 mark.

While Bitcoin’s critics like JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and Russian government exist, why are its prices continuously increasing? This boost can be attributed to the rise in the Initial Coin Offering (ICOs), which is driven by the rise in other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum.

According to Forbes, in the first three quarters of 2017, more than $1.2 billion has been raised for more than 100 ICOs. Like Bitcoin serves as a liquid asset behind these ICOs and it can be converted to cash, its value continues to rise.
