Bitcoin, the flagship cryptocurrency, hit a new all-time high of $66,000 on the Bitstamp exchange at 1:45 p.m. UTC.
The fresh record high came after ProShares successfully launched the very first Bitcoin futures exchange-traded fund on Oct. 19. As reported by U.Today, it was the second-most-traded ETF on the New York Stock Exchange on its debut date.
The Bitcoin price approached daily lows shortly after the ETF commenced trading on the New York Stock Exchange, but bulls later stepped in and pushed the largest cryptocurrency to yet another lifetime peak the following day.
It took the benchmark crypto 189 days to update its all-time high, enduring several painful corrections.
Bitcoin is up roughly 125% since plunging below the $28,000 level in June.
