The bitcoin price broke out of its brief slump on Thursday, surging more than 7% to cross $4,450 and set a new all-time high of $4,492. The ethereum price saw a nice single-day bump as well, while several altcoin prices rose to record highs. The day’s upward trend resulted in another record for the cryptocurrency market cap. Just a week ago, the total value of all cryptocurrencies was $123 billion. This was an impressive number, but the market has stretched higher almost every day since. At present, the total crypto market cap is about $145 billion.
