The world's biggest cryptocurrency made another leap upwards.

Wednesday evening, bitcoin took another step upwards and reached the $13,000 mark, according to numbers from Bitstamp. This after last week’s climb upwards, which may be due to a variety of things.

Up 30 percent since last week

Last week, the world’s biggest cryptocurrency was trading around $10,000 before that mark was crushed during the weekend. Since then, it has continued upwards and the increase since last week is more than 30 percent.

Bitcoin currently accounts for more than 60 percent of the total market value of all cryptocurrencies, according to Coinmarketcap, something Trijo News has previously written about.
