LocalBitcoins set a new all-time trading high of $45.7 mln last week as Bitcoin almost hit $3,000.
Unlike previous records, the latest high was the result of a broad trend across all LocalBitcoins markets as traders rushed to cash in on Bitcoin’s steep climb.
Depending upon the country, LocalBitcoins traders will have faced rates of over $3,000 per coin or even higher.
Last week, Cointelegraph reported that in South Korea, even official exchanges were quoting up to $4,500 for one Bitcoin.
