Bitcoin surges above $60,000 as Coinbase stock market float receives green light from US regulators

Bitcoin surged above $60,000 today after US regulators approved the stock market listing of Coinbase, the largest US cryptocurrency exchange.

The landmark decision from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is a major boon to the legitimacy of cryptocurrencies and helped Bitcoin edge closer to its all-time high of over $61,000 achieved last month.

Bitcoin rose by more than 2 per cent to $60,103 this morning, from Thursday’s close of $58,728, before settling back at around $59,000 in afternoon trading on Friday.

Last night, Coinbase – which made a regulatory filing to go public in February – said that the SEC had approved its application to list in New York.
