After trading in a range for several weeks and it appeared that the bull season was over, Bitcoin is on the run again. The flagship cryptocurrency broke above the previous ATH of $61,683 yesterday, according to Coinmarketcap.
As of this writing, Bitcoin price is hovering around $64,517 and edging close to the ATH of $64,758. This rally appears to come on the day scheduled for Coinbase to go live on Nasdaq. The San Francisco-based exchange will become the first crypto company to be listed on a stock market in the US.
The exchange could capitalize on the current market frenzy as it gets listed on Nasdaq today. Amid the crypto boom, Coinbase expects its first-quarter profit to be between $730 million and $800 million, which is twice its earnings in 2020.

Dogecoin has made impressive gains after soaring by 90.05% in the last 24 hours. DOGE is currently trading at $0.1394 after retracing from its all-time high of $0.1409.
XRP price has also continued on its way up following the news of its integration with Wanchain. The token is currently trading around $1.92 after moving up by 18.28% in the last 24 hours.
