Bitcoin rises to new record high as Mastercard plans to allow crypto transactions

Credit card company Mastercard has announced that it will enable transactions with cryptocurrencies in the future - pushing the bitcoin price, which has been rising for weeks, even higher.

Bitcoin rose to a new all-time high of $48,481. This means that bitcoin is taking aim at the round mark of 50,000 US dollars for the first time.
