Speaking on the most recent gain of the cryptocurrency, Bank of Singapore analyst Moh Siong Sim said: "some of it is reflecting the fear of a weaker dollar."

"It seems like people are preferring bitcoin as an expression of concern over currency debasement, relative to gold,” he added.

Bitcoin is also on its way to becoming a mainstream payment method with  PayPal accepting cryptocurrencies.
