Bitcoin goes on reaching new record highs. The day before, the price of the cryptocurrency exceeded 8,200 USD, and a record in bitcoin’s total daily trading was updated on Wednesday. This value exceeded 2 billion USD, soaring more than tenfold since the beginning of the year.
The increase is due to a swift hike in the quotes of the cryptocurrency, indicated by the fact that a number of conducted transactions per day has not practically changed since the beginning of the year.
Bitcoin reached another record high earlier: in block size limits, which, naturally, has an impact on the number of transactions. This indicator grew once SegWit was activated, but very slightly as the protocol is only used in 10% of transactions. If SegWit is fully applied, Bitcoin transaction limits should double.
