Many believe the sudden hike in BTC value was due to the Tesla founder’s tweet seeing as this was the same result when the richest man in the world tweeted “DOGE” and the jokecoin saw a rise in value and more investors. Skme BTC holders and analysts believe that it could only mean that the leading currency also scaled due to the bio update. 

Due to the Twitter fuss, BTC (+0.03%) scaled from the $32k range to over $38k plus just in a few hours.

BTC continued exchanging hands below $35k throughout the past weekend and it is currently trading at $33,788.90 at press time although it did a further dip on Sunday the eve of February.
