New all-time highs: Bitcoin price approaching $ 30,000

Bitcoin is growing 8 percent and is getting closer to the $ 30,000 mark.

Bitcoin ( BTC ) broke its all-time record again on December 30th. If it recovered, it could soar above its all-time high of $ 28,400.

BTC price reaches new all-time high

Data from Cointelegraph Markets and TradingView indicate that the BTC / USD pair hit its previous peak on Wednesday.

Overnight, Bitcoin Code confirmed the bears stand no chance after briefly falling as low as $ 25,830 in the past 24 hours.

At the time of going to press, it was up 7.5 percent over the day. It hit a new all-time high at $ 28,560.

This brings Bitcoin closer and closer to the $ 30,000 mark. This new psychologically important level just before the end of the year seemed almost impossible a week ago.

However, as Cointelegraph reported , analysts still believe the cryptocurrency could decline all the way to the support at $ 19,500.

Nonetheless, on Tuesday , Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe emphasized that $ 27,500 is an important area to break through to reach new all-time highs.

Ether price is growing the fastest among altcoins

The effects on the large altcoins were clearly felt. Ether ( ETH ) was nearing the $ 740 mark after rising 5.5 percent over the day.

Polkadot (DOT) confirmed this strength as it rose nearly 50 percent over the week.

As before, XRP was the exception. It lost 10 percent over the day and continues to be denied by major stock exchanges . That affects the mood. The ailing coin was still able to rise above $ 0.20 again.
