In the wake of Monday’s price surge, Bitcoin broke through resistance at $50,000.
This marks the first time in almost a month the world’s biggest cryptocurrency has crossed this psychologically crucial level.
In addition to bitcoin, Ethereum’s native cryptocurrency, ether, gained 3%, and Polygon’s MATIC coin surged 4.8%. Binance’s BNB coin rose 4%.
On Sept. 7, Bitcoin hit its last high of $50,000 after El Salvador recognized it as official tender. It then fell sharply.
