A high of 13,864 US dollars was reached on the Bitstamp trading platform in the middle of the week. Bitcoin gained almost 30 percent in value in October alone. Other digital currencies such as ether have also benefited from the recent price increase.
The price jump was triggered by the announcement by the payment service provider PayPal about a week ago that it would allow its customers to use crypto currencies such as Bitcoin. Investors hope the move to commercialize digital currencies will give a boost. The news follows other well-received news like the establishment of a Bitcoin fund by major investment firm Fidelity this summer.

However, the effect of such efforts on existing digital currencies is not clear. It is true that these are given a boost in awareness through considerations such as the European Central Bank (ECB) to create a digital euro. However, central banks are critical of existing crypto currencies such as Bitcoin or Ether.
