    Bitcoin’s value touched $69,045 after surpassing its previous peak of $69,000, hitting a new all-time high.

    The upward price trajectory marks an excellent recovery after a 28-month bear market slump, where it dropped by 77%. It took 846 days for the cryptocurrency to rebound from its low point, showcasing a 346% increase in value since its dip to just over $15,000 in late 2022. In 2024, Bitcoin (BTC) has seen a price surge of approximately 70%.

    After hitting this all-time high, Bitcoin quickly dipped below $67,000 and as of 10:50 a.m. EST, is currently trading at $67,300.
