Cryptocurrency markets were celebrating Monday as Bitcoin passed $4600 and SegWit gained 10% transaction share.
As the overall value of crypto passed the $150 bln market cap boundary once again, Bitcoin appears to have broken out of a stagnant period after failing to stay above $4400 last week.
The latest data from Coinmarketcap and Bitcointicker show prices hovering around $4575 at press time.
SegWit proponents are especially satisfied, with last week’s disputed assertion that the technology was already going “parabolic” now looking more likely.
The proportion of Bitcoin network transactions using the upgrade, which activated in August, grew by almost half from 7% to 10% last week.
