According to Investing.com charts, quotes touched $4,893 area, and the currency is still trading close to these levels. Besides, the total capitalization of the mined Bitcoins has reached $79,023 bln by the time of writing.
Most probably, the current surge of Bitcoin is related to recently announced cryptocurrency exchanges legalization in Japan. The Japanese authorities are aimed to form a legal base for crypto exchanges providing just regular monitoring of the activity. This news made Chinese crypto exchanges that are out of law in China since October move to Japanese territory.
Late September, Financial Services Agency of Japan approved the license requests of 11 crypto currency exchanges. The largest exchanges of Japan and Singapore are most likely to get s permission for transactions. The current processes triggered a surge of crypto currency trading in Japan. According to Cointelegraph, the share of this country in global trades exceeded 50%. And such a development may push Bitcoin even higher with initial target at $5,000.
