Bitcoin climbs to three-year peak, nears all-time high 1

Bitcoin rose to a nearly three-year high Friday, as investors continued to scoop the virtual currency on expectations it could well exceed its all-time peak of just under $20,000.

Bitcoin surged to $18,766.79, the highest since December 2017, and was last up 4.9 percent at $18,696. It has gained 17 percent so far this week, the largest weekly gain since June 2019, climbing more than 160 percent so far this year.

“Today bitcoin has gotten to a place where institutional investors, banks, and family offices are legitimately pondering involvement as a defense against currency devaluation,” said Alex Mashinsky, chief executive officer at Celsius Network, a crypto lending platform.

He added that in 2017, the rally in bitcoin was led by retail investors who were early adopters.

“Because large players, like LINE Corp and PayPal are involved this go around, we can expect more stability than the 2017 bubble. This isn’t a gold rush anymore,” he added.

The bitcoin market now boasts a functioning derivatives market and custody services by established financial institutions. Large firms including Fidelity Investments and Japan’s Nomura Holdings Inc have started safeguarding bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies for institutional investors.

Other major cryptocurrencies, including ethereum and XRP, which often move in tandem with bitcoin, rose 7.2 percent to $505.2, and 3 percent to 31 US cents, respectively.
