The Decentralized Cryptocurrency Bitcoin Reaches Another All-Time High

2017 has become bitcoin’s year of consecutive all-time highs (ATH), and the currency’s value hasn’t slowed down yet. На момент, bitcoin traders have swapped over $2B in BTC trade volume over the course of the past 24-hours. Дополнительно, since the price surpassed the most recent $6,300 ATH, the bitcoin economy has added another $5B to its market capitalization.

Many people think that individuals are buying bitcoin at an exponential rate due to the upcoming Segwit2x forks. spoke with Crypto Compare’s Charles Hayter who believes the expectation of getting a 1:1 Segwit2x payout is driving a lot of demand.

“This has led to the expectation that forks are a good thing as by hiving of fanatical elements progress can be driven forward more swiftly as well as the opportunity for private key holders to have stakes in both chains with their independent policies and tenets,” Hayter tells

The same situation took place during the Bitcoin Cash hard fork this past August which led to quite a bit of bitcoin trade volume and increased value. После развилки, bitcoin’s price remained stable and then continued to rise further a few days later. Дополнительно, Japan is bringing a lot of bitcoin demand to the table, as the yen is still dominating markets by 62 процент. более того, bitcoin enthusiasts also believe the bitcoin gold fork pushed BTC to its most recent $6,180 ATH.

“The lure of free bitcoin gold is thought to have contributed to the recent rise to $6200,” Hayter emphasizes.

The capacity for the crypto-community to create value out of ‘thin air’ is well founded. The ability of Bitcoin forks certainly has a lifespan but investors, opportunists and the community will most likely lose their appetite for such hard forks as it is logical to focus innovation on one primary chain.

While Bitcoin’s Price Continues to Rise Altcoin Valuations Slump

Over the course of the next fifteen days until the fork, traders are forecasting the price to cross $7K or higher. В данный момент, that prediction doesn’t seem too far off, but traders are fully aware that the aftermath of this specific fork could be entirely different than last August’s fork. более того, the BTC rise has definitely affected altcoins who are not experiencing the traditional price spikes they usually get when BTC rallies. This confirms the theory that traders are dumping altcoins for BTC to get in on the possible 1:1 Segwit2x token distribution in two weeks.
