It is Wednesday April 14, 2021 and we have new highs for Bitcoin in USD as well as in EUR. Highest price in USD was 64,900.00 and in EUR 54,180.00, both according to https://kraken.com, And still going up it seems.
Latest highs in March and April 2021
And on Monday, April 12, 2021, Bitcoin reached another new high, in Euro. Highest right now is EUR 51,443.00 for one Bitcoin and not stable (yet). Previous highest value was EUR 51,000.00 on March 31, 2021. Highest value in USD today is USD 61,000.00. Highest USD value ever was USD 61,724.60 on March 14, 2021.
Before today the most recent highest values were USD 59,800.00 and EUR 51,000.00 for one Bitcoin.
The trend seems to be somehow kind of stable in the region EUR 44,000.00 to EUR 51,000.00 and not really up as I stated before.
If you are interested trading Bitcoin please use one of my affiliate links if you don’t have a trading account yet. Of course you can also just buy and keep Bitcoin, which can also be done at one of the Exchanges below.
More recent highest prices
I was just looking for the highest price of Bitcoin ever, and it appears search engines can’t easily produce this answers, as I didn’t get any straight answer. So maybe try to make this post about that? And of course I am trying to become successful with this page.
Previous highest values were USD 58,339.00 or EUR 48,000.00 on February 22, 2021 and USD 61,724.60 and EUR 50,744.00 on March 14, 2021.
As of today it seems to be EUR 34,140.00 on January 8, 2021, as this is what I can see in the chart on https://kraken.com, the trading platform I mostly use, but I am not fully sure. Right now it is EUR 33,217.00, which is a more recent high. And still going up it seems, as while writing I see EUR 33,300.00.
And yes, I am Dutch, so I am still thinking mostly in Euro, not in USD, but I will add those values also later.
The 2017 peak
According to Investopedia, the highest price of Bitcoin in the 2017 peak was USD 20,089.00.
I am still searching for the data and I realize it is not easy to get the real highest price, as I presume those things are kept by exchanges. I found a site with downloadable data, Cryptodatadownload, and the highest price on Bittrex in USD seems to be USD 19,850.00 on December 12, 2017. Strangely enough the highest prices in EUR seem to have been higher. I found EUR 21,799.00 on Bitbay on December 20, 2017 and EUR 16,457.00 on Bitstamp on December 17, 2017.
Will investigate further.
So it seems I moved my attention from Electroneum to Bitcoin, as Electroneum seems to be dead for now and Bitcoin is (still) thriving. So maybe write a bit more about Bitcoin and provide some more information about it.
