Just after 5am EST, Bitcoin prices climbed past $15,000USD on Coinbase for the first time, giving it a market cap of over a quarter of a trillion dollars.

At the time of this writing (7:30am EST), CoinMarketCap trading data shows Bitcoin at $15,104.50, up 15.98% in the last 24 hours. This places Bitcoin squarely above a $250 billion market cap.

Seems the FOMO is pushing people to pull the trigger in droves.

Since the start of the 2017, prices have increased over 1400%. This meteoric rise seems to show few signs of slowing down, although we’ll see what happens when Bitcoin futures start trading later this month.
