Bitcoin’s value increased by 2.10 percent during the week after a mini-slump in January.
The most valuable cryptocurrency asset traded below $40,000 for the most part of last month.
The rise in the value of Bitcoin above $40,000 earlier on Saturday, reflected the increasing confidence among investors in the crypto community amid threat from bonds’ rising yields.
Bitcoin traded between $34,000 and $39,000 in January, a development that sparked fear that the price correction which began since the crypto asset hit an all-time high of $68,990.90 in November would spill into February.
However, according to the Bitcoin price index tracked by Coindesk, Bitcoin surpassed the $40,000 mark by hitting $40,223.13 before rising to $41,926.40 in the last 24 hours.
Bitcoin market capitalization now stands at $784.72 billion after $14.19 billion worth of bitcoin was sold in the last 24 hours. Its year-to-date value remains at -9.91 percent.
