Bitcoin, the world’s biggest cryptocurrency by market value, rose above the $50,000 (€43,000) mark for the first time in four weeks on Tuesday, adding to a series of gains since the start of October.

The cryptocurrency fell below that level on September 7th amid a broader selloff in shares of cryptocurrency and blockchain related firms that day.

It continued to fall in September, hitting a low of $40,596 on September 21st.

On Tuesday, Bitcoin rose as much as 2.35% to hit $50,398.10.

Cryptocurrency investment products and funds recorded inflows for a seventh straight week, as institutional investors warmed to more supportive statements from regulators, data from digital asset manager CoinShares showed on Monday. — Reuters
