Daily market update: Bitcoin continues to test $16,000

The bitcoin price has now closed over $15,000 for 5 out of the last 7 days and shows no signs of slowing down, with yet another Wall Street legend going public with his admiration. This week, Bill Miller, founder of investment manager Miller Value Partners, followed Stanley Druckenmiller, Paul Tudor Jones, Michael Saylor and many more when he said that he “strongly” recommends bitcoin at current prices. Is he right?

Bitcoin’s market cap is certainly looking promising. The cryptocurrency’s valuation is now bigger than all but 17 publicly-listed firms in the US, nestling snuggly between Home Depot (market cap of $306 billion) and Verizon ($242 billion). That means it’s bigger than Netflix, PayPal, Coca-Cola, and Disney. When top 10 for Bitcoin?
