As Cointelegraph reported at the time, one June 22 BTC crossed the $11,000 line in under 24 hours after breaking $10,000. Earlier this week professional trader Peter Brandt also tweeted that bitcoin’s price is currently taking aim at $100,000 target. According to him, bitcoin is currently on its fourth parabolic growth phase, and “is a market like no other.”
