Bitcoin broke all speculations and reached a high price of USD 18,400 earlier this week. Cryptocurrency enthusiasts are very optimistic about this “healthy trend” as contrary to 2017, there are not many hypes, scams, misinformation, and propaganda. Only positive events are fueling the price, such as increased adoption and spreading sound knowledge. Will the price continue to rise and break its previous all-time high or adjust back to a lower price level, opening buy opportunities for new investors?
