The price per bitcoin is once again past the $1,000 mark at exchange Mt. Gox, following news that Overstock.com had made $130,000 in the first day of accepting bitcoin resounded through the community — making it the first major retailer in the world to do so.
As of this writing, the price is $1,013 per bitcoin, up over 6% in the past 24 hours. The price has reached a high of $1,023 today and a low of $935 — reminding us that the currency is still volatile as ever.
Meanwhile at Bitstamp, the price is over $100 less than Gox, at $898 per bitcoin at the time of this writing.
While we’re not near the all-time high of $1,242, the price movement today hints at a potentially very interesting year not only for the price of bitcoin, but for the community as well.
