The price of bitcoin, the most popular cryptocurrency in the world, rose above $22,000 for the first time since mid-June due to the growth of global stock markets.
The bitcoin rate by 19:55 Moscow time is growing by 5.8% – up to $ 22.147 thousand, according to the Kraken exchange.
Ether, the second most popular cryptocurrency, jumped in price by 11.3% to $1496.
“Bitcoin rebounded from the $20,000 levels amid slightly increased Wall Street optimism for risky assets,” Edward Moya, an analyst at brokerage Oanda, wrote in a note.
US stocks finished last Friday with the highest rise in a month and continue to rise on Monday, as well as European stocks.
