There is no rest for the Bitcoin trade: a full week of surprises for the main cryptocurrency

The last week of November 2017 had several important milestones to offer for the main global cryptocurrency, Bitcoin.
It was the first time this cryptocurrency trade value reached above US$9,000. Knowing that just a week before the Bitcoin reached an earlier height of US$8,000 makes this even greater of a feat.
However, there was still more to come as the next milestone that was passed was a really important one. On Tuesday 28th November, Bitcoin soared and increased its value with more than US$1,000 in 24 hours, reaching a record high at US$11,388.33.
Because of the soaring interest and traffic on global bitcoin exchanges, they suffered difficulties processing the growing demand. The largest US-based exchange suffered sporadic downtime with several services were unavailable for some customers.
Unfortunately, the climb was diminished fast with a soaring plunge of 18%, bringing back the value to about US$9,000. Despite this sharp drop, the total trading volumes remained soaring $9.75 billion in the middle of the week, according to CoinMarketCap.
"It's definitely been going a bit parabolic over the past few weeks. I think today's action marks somewhat of an inflection point," said Jonathan Krinsky, chief market technician at MKM Partners.
At the same time, the second most popular cryptocurrency, Ethereum, had trading volumes at just above US$2 billion, which shows the markets are beginning to mature faster and in greater volumes.
