Bitcoin hits new highs



LONG READ... CBN CRYPTOCURRENCY BAN: What is the noise about?

Despite bitcoin achieving another all-time peak on Monday, publicly traded mining stocks on Nasdaq started the day with declines.

Shares linked to companies such as Marathon, Cleanspark, Riot, and others have dropped in value against the U.S. dollar, contrasting with bitcoin’s surge to fresh price milestones.

On Monday, Mar. 11, 2024, BTC reached $72,486, but most bitcoin mining companies’ shares have fallen following a brief recovery last week.

While every publicly listed mining firm ended Friday with gains last week, Monday presented a different picture.
