Bitcoin price today: How much is one bitcoin worth after crash? | City & Business | Finance

Bitcoin blazed a trail, rapidly-rising by 230 percent in that period alone.

This witnessed BTC reaching a record value of more than $41,000 (£30,050) on Saturday, January 8.

And co-called altcoins, such as ethereum, gained 217 percent, prompting a number of prominent investors to warn about the dangers of speculative bubbles.

However, cryptocurrency traders are at pains to point out how bitcoin remains a full 95 percent above where BTC was even a month ago.
