BTC Price Breaks Historical Record of $50,000

The leading cryptocurrency in terms of capitalization, Bitcoin (BTC) has crossed the $50,000 mark on Tuesday, February 16, setting a new record in the digital currency market.

The highest price was noted on the BitMEX exchange, where Bitcoin reached a value of $50,980. The market capitalization of Bitcoin alone surpassed the level of $930 billion. The total cryptocurrency market capitalization has grown to $1.5 trillion.

However, almost immediately after overcoming the maximum, BTC experienced a minute drawdown to $48,451. At the time of this writing, the price of BTC/USD is $49,800.

We will remind, earlier it became known that long-term investors began to drain Bitcoin. However, according to Glassnode experts, this is rather a good sign for the market. Thus, experts say, there are new places for new retail investors on the market. They are the main drivers of the bullish rally.
