PayPal takes BTC price to $12,400

Data from Cointelegraph Markets and Coin360 showed a strong 24 hours for bulls on Wednesday, with BTC/USD topping out at $12,400.

At press time, $12,300 formed the focal point, around an hour after Reuters reported that payment giant PayPal plans to support Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies via its wallet and Venmo app from 2021.

The announcement added to an already buoyant BTC trading environment, with $12,000 resistance evaporating overnight on Tuesday.

Weekly gains stand at 8.5% for Bitcoin, which is increasingly diverging from other macro assets, which put in lackluster performance over the same period.

Earlier, Cointelegraph published a list of factors which one analyst believes all support the bull case for Bitcoin going forward.

PayPal should also support altcoins Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Following the news, ETH/USD increased by a modest 2.2% to $378, while BCH/USD put in 4.5% gains to hit $456.
