Currently at $10,146, Bitcoin has seen an amazing 24 hours. It had been lingering in the $7,000s range since Oct. 23. 

Only 9 hours ago, Cointelegraph reported on a sudden BTC surge to $8,500. It consolidated at that point until roughly two hours ago, at which point it began another impressive rise.

According to one commentator, this was Bitcoin’s “4th largest gain in history and largest since May/10/2011 (if comparing against daily returns).”

The sudden bull run has left many speculating. Some attribute it to Chinese President Xi Jinping’s encouragement of blockchain development earlier in the day. 

Others may attribute it to the rise in Bakkt’s success, with the platform seeing an all-time high of 1,179 Bakkt Bitcoin Futures contracts traded.
