Today, Bitcoin (BTC) printed a new all-time high at $51,678 on major spot exchanges. At this level, its market capitalization reaches, yet again, an ambitious milestone on its road to the mesmerizing $1 trillion mark.

Bitcoin (BTC) shows no mercy to giants

At its current price over $51,000, there are only five corporations the king coin gives way to. Namely, they are public Saudi Arabian petroleum and gas mogul, Saudi Aramco, and American digital giants Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple.

Also, the two main precious metals, Gold and Silver, are still more valuable than Bitcoin (BTC).

Thus, according to Bloqport analytical service, Bitcoin (BTC) has broken above Tencent, a Chinese technology conglomerate. Tencent owns instant messengers QQ and WeChat, dozens of multimedia distribution platforms, gaming services and one of the world's largest web portals,

In 2018, Tencent became the first Asian corporation to reach a valuation of $500 billion. Now, it is valued at $907 billion, while the total market cap of the flagship crypto eyes the $950 billion level.

Whither Google?

In terms of fully diluted market capitalization (the pricing of all 21 million Bitcoins, which is the maximum supply for this blockchain), the "digital gold" has already reached $1 trillion.

Thus, the next target for Bitcoin (BTC) is Google. According to Bloqport, the giant will fall when the Bitcoin (BTC) price surpasses $75,000 per coin.
