Bitcoin hits $50K for first time since December 2021

Bitcoin price makes a new 2024 high above $50,000, a level not seen in over two years.

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) surged on Feb. 12, reaching its highest level since December 2021 as market participants’ excitement over spot BTC exchange-traded fund inflows and the upcoming BTC supply halving in April lifted investors’ expectations.

At the time of publishing, Bitcoin price reached a session high of $50,188 having gained more than 4%, according to data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView.

With the $50,000 level achieved roughly two months before the Bitcoin halving, investors anticipate BTC price to make a stab at the $69,800 all-time high, last seen on Nov. 8, 2021.
