January 17, 2017 at 5:01 PM | By Jit Sutradhar News


The price of bitcoin is up more than 7% today, climbing to just under $900.

Markets saw an average high of $896, according to the CoinDesk USD Bitcoin Price Index (BPI) after opening the day at $830. At press time, prices were currently averaging $882.10, an increase of just over 6%, BPI data shows.

Notably, CNY-denominated markets have climbed more than 10% today, hitting a high of ¥6,193.35. Prices are currently averaging ¥6,091.78.

The jump followed a day of relative calm, which saw the digital currency’s price fluctuate between $820 and $835 during much of the day’s trading.

BPI data shows that the price increase began shortly after 03:00 UTC this morning, a rise that has sparked curiosity given that it seems to have been driven by China-based exchange activity.

Bitcoin markets have seen a mix of volatile and subdued trading sessions in recent days, spurred significantly by regulatory developments from the region.
