As the price of Bitcoin crushed through the $1100 resistance level with great gusto last evening, it appears to only be a matter of time before the crypto-currency reaches and surpasses its all-time high of $1165.
But perhaps what is even more astonishing is that Bitcoin is now only $20 from equaling the dollar price for gold, which currently stands at the same all-time high price that Bitcoin achieved back in 2013.
Bitcoin prices are up $100 on the day, having already shot past the $1,100 mark.
Markets have risen nearly 10% over the course of the day’s trading, according to data from the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (BPI), which hit a high of $1,141 at time of writing before falling back.
With the move, global exchange averages have inched closer to the BPI's all-time high of $1,165.89, set on 30th November, 2013, leaving them roughly $25 below that level.

While there may some short-term resistance for Bitcoin to reach and surpass its all-time high price of $1165, the chances are very good we could see this happen before the market close on Friday in Asia. But either way, with Bitcoin, gold, or silver, all three have quickly become the money of choice for people seeking to protect themselves from the cash bans, capital controls, and overall destruction of the sovereign money they primarily use.
