It was probably bound to happen, but if you’ve got your eyes on the charts this morning, you may have noticed that the price of bitcoin at the Mt. Gox exchange has once again surpassed $1,000 — a bit over a week since the last time this happened.
At the time of this writing, the bitcoin price at the Japan-based exchange is sitting at $1,013. Meanwhile at Bitstamp, the price per bitcoin is significantly less at $829. That’s a different of about $184 — significantly higher than what we’re normally used to seeing.
Anyone can speculate what the reason for the price increase could be, but it might have something to do with the good news we’ve been hearing about this past week.
But this is bitcoin, after all, and the price can change on a dime.
