Bitcoin is continuing to set new price records, breaking above $35,000 for the first time ever on Jan. 5.
After setting its past record of roughly $34,800 on Jan. 3, BTC posted a fast retracement down to $28,000 the following day.
However, the crash was short-lived, with BTC quickly recovering, and pressing into new all-time highs above $35,800 around 4.30am (UTC).
Bitcoin has now gained roughly 80% since breaking into new highs on Dec. 16, and is up 22% in seven days.

Ethereum has also pushed back above $1,100 alongside BTC’s latest push, and has gained 44% over the past week.
