Bitcoin breaks ATH against a dozen currencies as BTC price breaches $59K

The Bitcoin price breached $59,000 on Feb. 28, reaching a new two-year high of $59,485 and only down 13% from its all-time high (ATH) of $68,789. As BTC’s price nears its all-time-high price in United States dollar terms, it has already broken ATH records against multiple fiat currencies.

Over the past few days, Bitcoin (BTC) has hit ATHs against the Japanese yen, the Malaysian ringgit, the Indian rupee, the new Taiwan dollar, the South Korean won, the Chilean peso, the Australian dollar, the Chinese yuan, the South African rand, the Norwegian krone and the Turkish lira.
