The price of bitcoin increased by another 5.2%, thus breaking the next historical maximum of $ 29 thousand, according to the data of the CoinDesk portal as of Wednesday evening (about three o'clock in the morning Moscow time). Bitcoin price reaches $ 21,061.

At this rate, experts do not exclude that the cryptocurrency will increase to $ 30 thousand next year. In mid-December, the price of the crypt crossed the $ 20,000 mark per unit. The cryptocurrency reached the 20 thousand mark for the last time in 2017.

“If the expected wave of retail flows materializes, I expect bitcoin to rise to $ 30,000 when we enter the new year”, - Denis Vinokurov, head of research at London-based Prime Brokerage Bequant, commented to the portal.

Experts note that interest in bitcoin is growing amid the global economic crisis. At the same time, the e mission of this cryptocurrency today is very limited: at the moment, most of the bitcoins have been “mined”.
