Crypto Twitter rang in the Christmas cheer with a new all-time high for Bitcoin (BTC), culminating a tremendous year for the digital asset.
The Bitcoin price peaked at $24,661.76 on Bitstamp, surpassing the previous record set last week. The altcoin market also rebounded, with Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and XRP posting impressive rallies.
Bitcoin’s biggest proponents took to Twitter to celebrate the new milestone — and to remind their followers to keep holding as the new year approaches. Gemini co-founders Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss haveexpressed some excitement:
