The price of the main cryptocurrency has again reached a historical high. The Bitcoin rate has surpassed $73,300, according to Coinmarketcap data. BTC has updated its price record for the fourth time in the last seven days.

Those who purchased BTC at a low price last year began to take profits. This is contributing to the rise in the number of “young coins” (that is, cryptocurrencies that have moved within the last three months).

Glassnode experts note that short-term Bitcoin investors are currently accumulating BTC, believing that the asset’s value wi
