Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, is on a record-breaking spree. It smashed through $27,000 for the first time on Sunday, its highest valuation ever.
On Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, Bitcoin was selling at $27,248 at around 6 a.m. GMT. It also posted a 24-hour high of $27,555.
From $26,000 on Saturday, Bitcoin has gained nearly 11% in value.
The total market volume exceeded half a trillion, reaching $507.1 billion. Its market volume has jumped by $46 billion in the last 24 hours.
Binance, sharing a statement on its Twitter account, said Bitcoin hit $24,000 on Dec. 24th, $25,000 on the 25th, $26,000 on the 26th and $27,000 on the 27th and that the cryptocurrency will "continue (the trend)."
Bitcoin smashed through $20,000 for the first time on Dec. 16, it's then-highest ever.
It has gained more than 170% this year, buoyed by demand from larger investors attracted to its potential for quick gains, purported resistance to inflation and expectations it will become a mainstream payment method.
Bitcoin's blistering rally has seen a massive flow of coin to North America from East Asia, fueled by a hunger for bitcoin among bigger and compliance-wary U.S. investors.
The rally in bitcoin, which some investors have seen as a potential safe haven, has coincided with spot gold's drop in recent months.
