Almost the whole year, bitcoins fell from a record $ 20,000 (CZK 450,000) to below $ 4,000 (CZK 90,000). And this year they stayed the highest in this year.
Although last year's analysts did not predict this virtual currency a bright future, bitcoins gain momentum this month almost every month.
However, the value was over $ 5,000 (£ 112,500). The price increase did not stop even in May, at the beginning of the month the price first jumped to $ 6,000 (CZK 135,000), since mid-month to $ 7,000 (CZK 157,500) and then up to $ 8,000, CZK 180,000.
At the beginning of last week, currency exchange offices reported $ 9,000 ($ 10,000) while last weekend managed to beat two milestones in a row ̵
However, it must be emphasized that virtual currencies are not uniform, traded on exchanges and switching offices depending on volatility. Price differences can vary, even in the order of several thousand kronor.
The Last Bitcoin in 2140
Bitcoin was created by an anonymous developer under Satoshi Nakamoto's pseudonym. He still doesn't know who he really is. Although Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright adopted his authorship in 2016, he did not provide convincing evidence.
Last year, the American entrepreneur and the visionary Elon Musk was referred to as the bitcoin author, but he denied this claim. The user must not theoretically pay one krona for the acquisition. In fact, people can take advantage of them with their computers.
New coins are still punching a network of computers with specialized software programmed to release new coins at a steady but declining rate. Finally the number of coins in circulation will reach 21 million, which should be around 2140.
