Bitcoin Reaches a Record Level – 9000$
Only 10 days it took Bitcoin crypto currency to increase its value by an additional $ 1000. So, on the night from Thursday to Friday, November 16-17, the Bitcoin rate for the first time exceeded the mark of $ 8000. And today, on November 26, a Bitcoin overcame a mark of $ 9000.
It is assumed that the reason for another spurt in the value of Bitcoin was the publication of information that the founder of Xiaomi Lei Jun is an investor of the Chinese company Bitmain – the largest manufacturer of devices for the crypto currency. It is believed that this can increase the confidence of the community in the crypto currency.
