Bitcoin Continues Its Recovery and Hits Highest Level in Over a Month

In January, Bitcoin lost 18% of its value, marking its worst start to a year since the crypto winter of 2018. February brought a much-needed breath of fresh air for investors as Bitcoin crossed $42,000 for the first time in three weeks over the weekend.

Bitcoin Reaches Highest Level in Over a Month

Continuing its strong run that began over the weekend after the Fed released its better-than-expected U.S. jobs data, Bitcoin has gained an additional 5% to rise to its highest level in over a month. 

Bitcoin’s recent gains saw its price peak at an interday high of $45,300, a level last reached on January 5. Since then, Bitcoin has dipped back to stabilize around the $43,930 level.
