(Reuters) – Bitcoin continued its rally on Sunday to move closer to $ 60,000, continuing a dramatic advance that saw it surpass $ 1,000 billion in capitalization.
The most iconic cryptocurrency hit $ 58,354, taking its weekly earnings to around 20%. Its value has more than doubled since the start of the year.
Bitcoin surpassed the $ 50,000 mark for the first time on Tuesday, crossing a new milestone towards broad acceptance by both the general public and the financial world.
It has accelerated significantly after the decision announced this month by Tesla to invest $ 1.5 billion (1.2 billion euros) in it and prepare to accept it as a means of payment for its electric cars. .
