On the night of April 2, the bitcoin rate sharply pulled up, in a matter of hours it rose by more than 17% (the weighted average rate as of 8:30 Moscow time) and broke through the mark of $ 4,800.
The rise in Bitcoin has become even more surprising given the news that the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has postponed the consideration of two applications for registering Bitcoin-ETF for another 45 days. It is expected that the regulator will delay this process further. Also on the eve of it became aware of a cyber attack on the Bithumb cryptocurrency exchange.
