SINGAPORE - Virtual currency bitcoin rose to an all-time high above $10,000 on Wednesday, according to data on blockchain and cryptocurrency website Coindesk.
The high of $10,044.29 took its gains in the past month to about 63 percent. On another major trading platform, the Luxembourg-based BitStamp, bitcoin was trading just shy of that big figure at $9,999.
It has soared more than 900 percent so far this year, posting the largest gain of all asset classes, on expanding financial and mainstream use.
