Bitcoin Soars Through $15,000, Up More Than 50% This Month


https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... this-month

Bitcoin climbed as much as 14.9 percent on Thursday as it surged above $15,000, extending this month’s advance to more than 50 percent. The price of the cryptocurrency touched $15,242.99, a record, according to Bloomberg pricing.

ASX Ltd., the main exchange operator for equities and derivatives in Australia, on Thursday said it will start using blockchain to process equity transactions. Blockchain is the ledger software that makes bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies possible, and Digital Asset Holdings LLC, the startup run by former JPMorgan Chase & Co. banker Blythe Masters, will supply the technology.
