Bitcoin price shows a 135%-rise

A crypto analyst Joseph Young has written in Twitter on Saturday that so far this year Bitcoin price has surged 135 percent.

It has recently gone through a small retracement, and floated around $7,900 for a while. Many expected BTC to drop even lower, however, the ‘digital gold’ keeps going North.

Joseph Young also points out at the fact that Facebook has found significant supporters for its GlobalCoin and this project may raise overall market interest in crypto and BTC in particular.
