Bitcoin, Ethereum Hit New ATHs One Day Before Coinbase Listing

The most popular cryptocurrency, bitcoin (BTC) has started discovering its new all-time highs (ATHs), moving above USD 63,000 for the first time in its history and liquidating almost USD 200m in short trading positions in one hour. The native token of the largest smart contract platform, Ethereum (ETH), reached its new ATH also.

At 16:52 UTC, BTC is trading at around USD 63,194, correcting lower from USD 63,579, reached earlier today. The price is up by 5% in a day and 7.5% in a week. It increased by 3% in a month and 813% in a year.

BTC hit its previous ATH on March 13, reaching USD 61,712 (per Coingecko), and it surpassed this level one day before a direct listing by the largest US crypto exchange, Coinbase.

“The run in the price of Bitcoin is remarkably being fueled by two core fundamental events which include the upcoming public listing of Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange, as well as the growing list of firms pressing on the SEC for an ETF product,” Nick Spanos, Co-founder of Zap.org, a platform for tokenizing services and curating service providers with a focus on oracle services, told Our.
