Bitcoin surges past $30,000 as record-breaking rally resumes

Cryptocurrency picks up year where it left off after rising more than 300% in 2020

비트코인 3만3000달러 돌파, 사상 최고가…테슬라 시총 코 앞까지


    암호화폐의 대장주인 비트코인이 새해의 문을 화려하게 열었다. 역대 최고가인 개당 3만3000달러를 넘어선 것이다. 시가총액 6000억 달러에 바짝 다가서며 전기차 업체인 테슬라의 시총(6689억 달러)을 넘어서는 것도 시간문제가 됐다.



 

글로벌 암호화폐 정보업체 코인마켓캡에 따르면 지난 2일(현지시각) 오후 7시49분 비트코인은 3만3155.12달러(약 3607만원)를 기록했다. 지난달 16일 처음으로 2만 달러를 고지를 밟은 지 보름여 만에 3만 달러 벽을 깨며 연일 신기록을 쓰고 있다. 비트코인 광풍이 일었던 2017년(최고가 1만9497달러)의 최고가는 이미 갈아치웠다.   

 

비트코인은 한국 암호화폐 거래소 빗썸에서도 3일(오후 3시 기준) 한 달 사이 81% 치솟은 3788만원에 거래되고 있다. 비트코인의 질주에 이더리움(88만7538원), 라이트코인(15만5138원) 등 우량 암호화폐도 상승세다.

With trading in mainstream financial markets yet to get going in 2021, bitcoin has resumed its dizzying ascent, rising 18 per cent in the first few days of January to top $34,000 by Sunday morning. 




The rally has fed concerns that bitcoin is set to repeat the events of three years ago, when a bull market dramatically collapsed. When the currency set a record high in November, economist Nouriel Roubini called it a “pure speculative asset and bubble with no fundamental value”. 


But some analysts have pointed to an increase in corporate and institutional interest in bitcoin. Well-known investors such as Paul Tudor Jones and Stanley Druckenmiller have thrown their weight behind it, and crypto-focused hedge funds have outshone peers.


The recent gains have far outpaced mainstream asset classes. Bitcoin rose 305 per cent last year, compared with the 16 per cent lift in Wall Street’s blue-chip S&P 500 stock index, and gold’s 25 per cent rally.



“Despite the rise in prices and valuations, we believe the conditions remain in place for a continued rally,” said Fundstrat analysts in late December.




They also cited a clearer approach to the sector from US regulators, and the possibility that the latest fiscal stimulus package agreed by Congress could feed retail demand.


Bitcoin’s frantic rally has been helped by signs that the cryptocurrency is becoming more integrated into the financial system. In October, PayPal said US customers would be given the option of holding bitcoin in their digital wallets. In December, crypto exchange Coinbase filed with regulators to go public.
