Later, it crashed down to a measly $3000. Many thought that Bitcoin had seen its last day and that a rise above $5000 would not come to pass.

However, as of June 26th, 2019, Bitcoin's value is approaching $14,000. Some cryptocurrency followers hope it will reach or surpass it's former glory amount of $20,000.
