Bitcoin (BTC) rebounds above $35,000

As we explained yesterday, Bitcoin (BTC) had marked the pace once the 30 000 dollar stage had been passed on January 2nd. The next day, it had hit the 35 000 dollar mark, making us fear a prolonged downturn. But the biggest cryptomonnaie managed to get through the barrier less than three days later.

This morning, the price of Bitcoin stood at $35,100, an all-time record. The capitalisation of digital currency now exceeds $652 billion. Over the last 24 hours, this corresponds to an increase of +14%:

Bitcoin enters the big league
As noted on the AssetDash website, which lists significant assets by market cap, Bitcoin is now in the top 10 of the world’s most capitalised assets. This morning, it even managed to overtake Alibaba Group Holding, which dominated it until a few hours ago. It is preceded by the shares of the biggest heavyweights in their respective sectors, including Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Alphabet A (Google) and Tesla :

Cryptography still has a long way to go before it catches up with Google and Amazon, but it could soon overtake Tesla, which has „only“ a capitalisation of 696 billion dollars.

This shows the incredible trajectory of Bitcoin, which has exploded all its records in just over two weeks. The Altcoins are far behind, with the exception of Ether (ETH), which is now in 75th place in the rankings: it has risen nearly 10 places in the space of a few hours. This morning it has a capitalisation of 131 billion dollars. ETH’s share price also seems to be holding above $1,100.
