The Bitcoin exchange rate has again updated the historical maximum

The total value of all bitcoins in circulation exceeds $53 billion


Over the weekend, the cryptocurrency Bitcoin (the classic, not the new Bitcoin Cash) rose to a new record, topping the mark of $3200 for one bitcoin. It is reported by the ITC , citing TechCrunch.

In may, the exchange rate of Bitcoin for the first time exceeded $2000 and in early June, the currency has almost reached $3000, and then plummeted to $2666. In July, the course altogether for the first time in two months fell below $2000.

Current another rise occurred a few days after the split Bitcoin in two varieties: classic bitcoin (BTC) and Cash (BCC).

The result of the new jump rate, the market capitalization of Bitcoin has crossed a new threshold of $50 billion based on the current rate, the total value of all bitcoins in circulation exceeds $53 billion (data from Coinmarketcap).

As for the new bitcoin, after splitting all available at the wallets of users savings “doubled” and they got the same number of new coins Bitcoin to Cash (BCC), which can be spent independently. At the time of the launch of a new BCC was worth 7-8 times cheaper than bitcoin (BTC) is about $350-370, but for the first day, the cryptocurrency has shown a growth of 120%, becoming the third largest capitalization after Bitcoin and Ethereum classic. However, the next day the rate of new bitcoin fell to $220. To date, one Bitcoin Cash estimated at $261.41.

Experts are quite skeptical about the prospects of a new kind of bitcoin, which at the moment, by and large, is not particularly valuable, if you forget about the stock races. Of course, this may change in the future, if the new currency would receive support from all market participants, but while the miners have given priority to the classic bitcoin.
