The price of the most famous cryptocurrency bitcoin has risen significantly and for the first time since mid-June has exceeded $ 39,000 (approximately CZK 850,000). According to experts, a number of factors contributed to the growth, including favorable comments from Tesla’s head of electric car manufacturer Elon Musek and Twitter’s head of the Internet company Jack Dorsey, writes the CNBC server.
According to CoinDesk, the price of bitcoin last night rose to $ 39,544.29, the highest level since June 16. Shortly before 8:00 CEST, bitcoin sold for about $ 38,537. Its price has gained almost 12 percent in the last 24 hours.
Earlier last week, bitcoin dropped below $ 30,000, but later headed up. Musk said Tesla would most likely resume receiving bitcoin payments again. Dorsey then stated that bitcoin would be an important part of Twitter’s future.
In addition, the London newspaper City AM informed on Sunday, referring to an unnamed source, that the Amazon online store plans to start accepting bitcoin payments by the end of the year.
