By CCN: The bitcoin price pounded to a new 12-month high on Sunday, slamming past the $8,750 mark in a vicious move that looks undeniably parabolic.

Less than an hour ago, the flagship cryptocurrency was struggling to hold the $8,000 mark, and it looked like BTC would exit the weekend trading near that threshold.

That changed, almost in an instant, when the bitcoin price suddenly surged more than $600, easily topping the $8,500 level en route to setting a new high for 2019. An unfettered BTC continued to soar, eclipsing the $8,800 mark on Bitstamp shortly before press time.

New All-Time High Creeps Closer to the Horizon

Even more significantly, the surge awarded bitcoin a green yearly candle, meaning that investors who purchased BTC one year ago today could now sell at a profit.
