Bitcoin sets new all-time high value of over $19,800, before falling again

Bitcoin has seen a number of price surges this financial quarter, and there are a lot of reasons as to why this is happening. One key reason is a PayPal deal that would allow users to buy, hold, and sell virtual cryptocurrencies using their PayPal balances. Government spending and current interest rates are also factors, as is the COVID-19 pandemic. Fidelity, a financial services corporation, also launched a Bitcoin fund for its wealthy investors in August 2020.

The popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin is setting new records. This morning, December 1, the prices on the highly volatile digital currency reached just under $19,860, breaking past its previous all-time high of $19,783 (set in December 2017) before falling in value again.

This rise, and then drop, in value could also be attributed to hoarding (or “hodling”), and a rush to invest or “mine” the cryptocurrency with the right resources.

Bitcoin, though, is still quite a risky investment when compared to the U.S. dollar or the values of gold and other rare metals. After surging past its previous record value earlier on December 1, prices dropped on the cryptocurrency again, bringing it closer to around $19,000 dollars. Before that, the value dropped even lower, to $18,313, according to data seen on CoinMarketCap. The value is often hard to predict, and it does not always sway with world events like stock prices often do.

This rise, and then drop, in value could also be attributed to hoarding (or “hodling”), and a rush to invest or “mine” the cryptocurrency with the right resources. It is not uncommon, though, as when Bitcoin hit its previous high value in December of 2017, it saw prices drop thousands of dollars just a few months later.

Still, since Bitcoin is the leading cryptocurrency, it does have an impact on many others on the market. When Bitcoin values rose on December 1, so did prices on Ether, peaking at around $636, according to Gemini. Even with the fall, prices on other cryptos like Litecoin, are trending upwards.

It is truly unknown how high Bitcoin prices can truly go next, but some estimates do predict it will surge once more. According to some experts, it could go to as high as $70,000 before the end of 2022, and maybe even above $100,000 again in the years 2023 to 2025.
