Bitcoin is seeing some positive price movements after a stuttering start at the beginning of last week.

The cryptocurrency is up by over 9 per cent compared to its Friday morning values, pushing it back above $47,000.

Other major cryptocurrencies have also mirrored these movements, with both Ethereum (ether) and Ripple (XRP) seeing similar price gains over the last week.

The global crypto market has also risen above the $2 trillion mark since Friday but has not changed significantly in the last 24 hours.

The largest gains have come from Binance Coin and Solana, which have risen in value by over 15 per cent in the last week.

Coming to the end of the month, a price prediction model posted by the pseudonymous analyst PlanB back in June once again appears to be coming true. The model predicted bitcoin would be worth $43,000 at the end of September.

From the beginning I could not believe that people bought into this. Of course I am using both meanings here. Why people would pay for fake money with real money baffled me.

Crypto-currencies biggest claims is anonymity. One of China's biggest fears is anonymity. So there's no way that the two can coexist!
