Bitcoin is making history these days and we are hearing about its soaring prices almost every day, Bitcoin mining is consuming outrageous amounts of energy, it has not stopped people from getting creative and even Samsung used its old phones to set up a mining rig.
The latest news is that Bitcoin has soared past the $10,000 mark and has no intentions of stopping. It did hit some lows at the beginning of the year. The up and down trend of the currency has seen it going higher and higher. Less than ten days ago on November 20th, it hit an all-time high of $8,200, then reached another high of $9,000 on November 26th and only two days after that, it has hit the $10,000 mark.
Looking at the cryptocurrency now, one would assume that it had been a smooth sailing ship but that has not always been the case, one year ago on this date, Bitcoin was aiming to hit $1,000. There were also some lows at the beginning of the year when the forking of the cryptocurrency divided it into Bitcoin Gold and Bitcoin Cash.
