This surge of the price was likely caused by Bitcoin’s sudden reaction to the recent interest rate hike by the Fed Reserve. The flagship cryptocurrency responded with a 3.07 percent growth after the rate had been lifted by 75 basis points by the America’s central bank.

When a rate hike was conducted in May, though, the crypto recession started which made Bitcoin shed roughly 40 percent of its value.

At the time of this writing, the second biggest coin by market cap is changing hands at $1,720. Back in May, before the rate hike, its price held in the $2,900 zone. On June 18, Ethereum even managed to nosedive below the $1,000 level briefly.
