On Friday, bitcoin keeps going up. It managed to ascend by 4% in the face of the general positive mood of investors as for the cryptocurrency.

Being the first in terms of capitalization the digital currency bitcoin keeps soaring in price for the second consecutive session.

For the last 24 hours on the Bitfinex exchange, bitcoin managed to grow by 5.18% hitting $9346.40.

Bitcoin tacked on after a weak start this week, when bitcoin went down to $8,000. After two days of growth on Wednesday, bitcoin sank by about 8%, losing approximately $800 and sinking below the psychologically crucial level of $ 9,000.
