The price of Bitcoin has continued to break its all-time highs and traded above $ 64,000 on April 15. On average BTC appreciated by 1.4% in these seven days, oscillating between 58,000 and 64,800 dollars.

The expected inclusion of Coinbase in NASDAQ that occurred on April 14, resulted in a new push for bitcoin and the crypto currency market in general, which had come to exceed 2 trillion dollars in capitalization.

In this period, the value of the crypto currency also reached a new all-time high, exceeding $ 2,500. ETH has benefited from developments in decentralized finance (DeFi) and, more recently, the great boom in non-fungible tokens (NFT), according to an analysis published by Crypto News.
