The same day, Ethereum (ETH) hit a new all-time high of $2,197. The world’s largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Bitcoin (BTC) has reclaimed the $60,000 mark on April 10.

The market cap of Bitcoin in circulation hit $1 trillion for the first time earlier this year. The cryptocurrency has grown over the last 12 months by acceptance from mainstream investors and companies such as Tesla and Mastercard.

In February, Tesla invested $1.5 billion in Bitcoin, saying it might even start accepting it as payment for its electric cars.

Ethereum Hits New All-Time High

Ethereum (ETH), the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, came close to $2,200 just days after breaching its previous ATH record of $2,100 for the first time.

ETH has delivered returns of more than 150% this year, and increasing institutional interest in the cryptocurrency could further push its prices much higher if the trend continues.

In recent weeks, Billionaire investor and entrepreneur Mark Cuban had talked about Bitcoin and Ethereum during an episode of the “Delphi Podcast.” He revealed that his crypto portfolio consisted of 60% Bitcoin, 30% Ethereum, and 10% other crypto assets.
