At press time, the price has slid back below the $800 mark, trading at an average of $799.20, BPI data shows.
The digital currency's price reached a high of $800.46, according to data from the CoinDesk USD Bitcoin Price Index (BPI). The move followed a month of progressive price gains, beginning the period at around $742, and caps a year of dynamic – and at times dramatic – market developments.
