The rate of bitcoin for the first time exceeded 20 thousand dollars this Sunday, according to the information of the portal CoinMarketCap.
At 15:05 Moscow time, its cost was $ 20,035. At the same time, bitcoin capitalization exceeded $ 335 billion.
Recall the previous maximum at around 19 thousand dollars was updated this Saturday, December 16.
But today’s day will be remembered not only by this record. The total capitalization of the segment rose to $ 600 billion for the first time, exceeding the market valuation of companies such as Amazon, Facebook and JPMorgan Chase, and the following targets are Microsoft ($ 640 billion), Alphabet ($ 716 billion) and Apple ($ 873 billion).
A curious reshuffle took place in the list of the largest exchanges. Over the past 24 hours, the most popular among traders was the Binance exchange, whose volume exceeded 3 billion dollars. The trading platform opened in July this year and invariably attracts traders with a wide range of digital assets and high liquidity, which allowed it to move such well-known platforms as Bithumb, Bittrex and Bitfinex.
