Bitcoin's price rose more than 600 percent since March 2020 amid heightened interest from small and large investors who anticipate continued growing support as a form of payment online with PayPal among the most recent adopters of digital currencies for online transactions.
Meanwhile, a number of central banks have responded to the rise of interest in cryptocurrencies by announcing plans to launch bank-backed digital currencies.
As of Sunday, Bitcoin's price continued its momentous rise to more than 34,000 U.S. dollars.
