Leading cryptocurrency bitcoin (BTC) has reached a new all-time high against the Euro as its price broke through the $65,000 mark for the first time since late 2021. 

The crypto asset recorded a peak price of €60,393, surpassing the previous ATH high of €53,000 set in September 2021, according to data on TradingView. However, at the time of writing, BTC has retraced to €57,704.61, a remarkable 56% increase year-to-date.   

The latest feat comes after the European Central Bank (ECB) bashed Bitcoin, saying its fair value is still zero despite ETF approvals in the United States. The bank further noted that the latest price boom will spark ‘massive’ collateral damage. 

Meanwhile, bitcoin achieved multiple milestones before surpassing the €60,000 price threshold.
