The first major peak came on February 23rd when Bitcoin surpassed $4,000. However, this didn't seem significant compared to the prices that BTC has recorded in the past. By April, BTC began its climb to $5,000, reaching new levels of support and resistance.May brought significant gains as well, seeing the asset climb from just over $5,000 to more than $8,000. June brought the mother of bull runs this year, sending Bitcoin well over $10,000 and reaching its yearly peak of $12,722 on June 27th. In total, Bitcoin saw a gain of 236% since January 1st and is currently trading at $10,687 per Bitcoin.
