The former all-time high was set just over one week ago on Oct. 13 when the price hit $5,865.10.
According to CoinMarketCap.com, the cryptocurrency has exceeded $100 billion ($0.1 trillion) in market capitalization for the first time.
“When we start talking in the trillions we are beginning to talk about a shift in the financial and monetary system,” said Jeff Berwick, founder of The Dollar Vigilante.
“And, as I pointed out recently, bitcoin is still but a glimmer in the all-seeing eye, so to speak, of the overall monetary picture. If bitcoin is truly on its way (and it’ll still be years if so) to becoming a widely used currency, then its upside is still massive.”
