Leading media outlets around the globe have had their heads turned by meteoric bitcoin (BTC) rise as the crypotasset rocketed up beyond the USD 18,000 mark.
And while crypto has remained a niche subject for the mainstream – except for rare and nefarious events such as the Mt. Gox exchange collapse of 2014 and the crypto scam-themed Twitter hacks of earlier this year – it has now erupted onto the pages of some of the world’s biggest newspapers, and grabbed the headlines at some of the planet’s most influential news agencies.
Here is just a small sample of how the world’s media powerhouses have reported on BTC’s latest rise, increasing interest in the most popular cryptocurrency this week.
It’s still far from what the market experienced in 2017. However, it can also be argued that more people already know about BTC now than three years ago.
