BITCOIN crosses $20,000 for the first time   


Dec 16 (Lagos) - Bitcoin price surged past the 20,000 mark this morning when it rose more than 6% to $20,700 levels. 


The cryptocurrency was last near these levels in early 2018 but prices collapsed to $3000 levels later that year and in 2019. 



This year however has seen a resurgence in crypto-currencies after some websites like Square started accepting bitcoin. Also some wall street firms have started allocating a small portion of their portfolios to crypto-currencies this year and that has helped drive prices higher.
