Bitcoin price has officially reached a new all-time high on Dec. 1 above $19,892 after nearly three years, according to data from Coinbase and Tradingview.
Despite the Thanksgiving crash last week, BTC price has managed to rebound throughout the weekend. Bitcoin then easily passed the $19,000 mark on Monday to reach its all-time high, albeit on a couple of exchanges.
There are three key trends that fueled BTC’s rise from sub-$3,600 in March to over $19,892. These include the rise in institutional demand, lower selling pressure, and the resilience of Bitcoin throughout 2020.
Most on-chain data points show that the demand for Bitcoin from institutions has been rapidly increasing.
In November, Grayscale recorded all-time high net inflows, and the CME Bitcoin futures market saw its open interest climb near $1 billion.
Grayscale, in particular, said that more institutions invested in cryptocurrencies during the third quarter of 2020 than ever before.
The figures Grayscale sees are important to gauge the institutional interest in Bitcoin because the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust is typically the first point of entry for most institutions to gain exposure to BTC.
In the United States, there is no exchange-traded fund (ETF) for Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies. Hence, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust is the closest investment vehicle to an ETF in the U.S. market. The Grayscale report read:
“More institutions invested in 3Q20 than ever before and have increased their average allocation from $2.2 million in 3Q19 to $2.9 million in 3Q20. Institutions that are comfortable with multiple products within the Grayscale suite of products, have averaged nearly double the commitments of single-product investors during 3Q20.”
As Cointelegraph reported in August, MicroStrategy purchased $450 million worth of BTC, adopting Bitcoin as its primary treasury asset. This was likely the spark that triggered the current wave of institutional demand for the digital store of value.

This Metric Suggests Bitcoin Price Can Go As High As $590K This Bull Run
The current Bitcoin (BTC) bull run could send BTC/USD as high as $590,000, one indicator forecast this week.
Curated by on-chain analytics resource Glassnode, the Net Unrealized Profit/Loss (NUPL) index has reached a level that has historically launched the Bitcoin price an order of magnitude higher.
The latest bull signal was noticed and uploaded to social media by the company’s chief technical offier, Rafael Schultze-Kraft, on Nov. 30. At the time, BTC/USD was already making new all-time highs on several exchanges.
NUPL currently resides at 0.62. Previously, reaching this level has begun an uptrend that only reversed once Bitcoin hit a new price range.
In 2011, the price expanded by a record 3,000% after the NUPL event, while in early 2013 it expanded 800% and another 600% later that year. In 2017, the year which delivered Bitcoin’s previous all-time high, there were 1,200% gains.
NUPL measures the proportion of coins in the network that are in profit versus those that are not. Built around a neutral zero value, the closer the index gets away from it, the more the network is in profit. Negative readings likewise signify majority losses.
“NUPL is at 0.62 and predicts tops at 0.8+,” Schulze-Kraft explained alongside an annotated chart.
A 0.8 reading or higher this time around thus opens the door to BTC/USD topping out at anywhere between $133,000 and $590,000.
“Just getting started,” he concluded.
