The first bull market in bitcoin occurred in November 2011 when it hit parity with the USD. In November 2012, it rose to $1,200, and in January 2021, it hit $41,000. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, announced that his company would begin accepting BTC and led to another all-time high. In October 2013, PayPal also announced that they would accept bitcoin. After a long period of declining prices, the price of bitcoin jumped nearly fivefold to over $1,500.
After the price retreated, it began its first “mini-bull run” and rose nearly 3,000%. The price then declined in November 2011 and bottomed out at $2.10. It did not bounce back in 2012 and finished the year between $13 and $14. In November 2013, it broke the $1,000 mark. Bitcoin has been rising steadily since then. This is why long-term investors prefer to hold on to their BTC.
