Market Cap reaches New Record

Bitcoin’s total market capitalization reached an all-time high today, surpassing the former peak from 2017. This is due to the increased overall supply, despite the currently lower unit price.

Although BTC is still trading below its December 2017 ATH of $20,000, the cryptocurrency marked another significant milestone. Bitcoin’s total market capitalization reached a new ATH of around $337 billion and it surpassed the previous record (around $334 billion in late December 2017).

So while the price is not at an all-time-high yet, the market cap reaches that ATH. Compared to the top of 2017, there are 1,8 million more BTC in circulation.

In terms of bitcoin units, GBTC holds a massive quantity of around 480,900 BTC, according to The Block Research.

Using the Grayscale Trusts helps investors to mitigate risks with private keys by using the fund as a trusted intermediary.
