The cost of bitcoin has been climbing all year, even as a “civil war” has divided a village of developers, and an Australian male has claimed to be a creator in a rarely orchestrated media philharmonic in new days.
Bitcoin is now trade during $457, according to a Bitcoin Price Index confirmed by CoinDesk. That’s a few dollars off a top daily “closing price” in a final 12 months that a index tracks, of $465 on Dec. 15. (Since bitcoin trade never stops, shutting prices differ among indices and measures.)
And one of Silicon Valley’s best connected people, YCombinator boss Sam Altman, thinks bitcoin is set to arise even more:
I am now a many bullish on bitcoin I’ve been, and all my bitcoin friends are a many bearish. Hmm.
