    Big corporate support

    The price of bitcoin soared on Monday and Tuesday of last week, driven by the decision of the US electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla to invest US $ 1.5 billion (1.23 billion euros) in this cryptocurrency, although it fell back on Wednesday.

    On Thursday and Friday, bitcoin rebounded and hit new highs after payment company Mastercard and bank BNY Mellon announced that they will allow the use of cryptocurrencies on their services.

    Ether, the second most widely used cryptocurrency, set a new record on Friday, near $ 1,862 (1,534 euros), although it now stands at around $ 1,770 (1,460 euros).
