The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has risen above $4000 for the first time this year. The token surged in value by 5 percent in the last hour or so.
After hovering around the $3700-$3900 mark for a while, BTC broke above the $4k level with a 5% spike. It rose as high as $4080, which is the highest price it has seen in over 2 weeks.
The psychological barrier of $4000 has been seen as a significant one for BTC investors since the major price crash of November 2018. However, each rally above this level has been short-lived, and the price tends to lose its value almost as quickly as it gained it. Many have predicted great things for BTC in 2019, but others are suggesting that the number one crypto may still not have seen a bottom.
