Bitcoin flashes past $19,000: could have $20K by Christmas

Bitcoin could reach $20K or higher before the end of the year

Bitcoin is on an unstoppable journey towards $20,000 right now after staying in the $16-17K mark for the last week, BTC breached $18,000 in the last 48 hours and has flown past $19,000 in the meantime.


The talk of Bitcoin reaching $20,000 by the end of the year, and even at the earliest; Christmas, has been real. We're getting so close to it right now, with Bitcoin's price doubling over the last three weeks. If you invested $1000 in January, you would have made a 20x increase in your initial investment... which is simply insane. Apple stock, where you at?

Hell, I wrote this story and left it for a few hours as I was busy and then as I went to write this article I double checked and the price had peaked at $19,783 while reaching $19,630 at the time of writing. Wow.
