Bitcoin goes above $51,000, here's what may have driven it up
It has happened after several major figures from the financial world have changed their Bitcoin stance and made bullish statements on the world's biggest cryptocurrency.
Shark Tank's Kevin O’Leary (also known as "Mr. Wonderful") has become a Bitcoin supporter and announced that he intends to spread three percent of his portfolio between Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Later on, he stated that he wants to invest in eco-friendly Bitcoin mining—but not in China.
The other influential figure who has issued a positive statement on Bitcoin is the SEC chair nominee (picked by U.S. President Joe Biden), Gary Gensler, who has called cryptocurrencies a "catalyst for change."
Twitter is raising $1.25 billion—to buy Bitcoin?
Besides, the recent announcement that Twitter is raising $1.25 billion in convertible notes has led the community to believe that Jack Dorsey wants to put Bitcoin onto Twitter's balance sheet.
