Bitcoin pops above $14,000 for the first time
The digital currency has shot above the $14,000 mark for the first time -- the third big barrier it's broken in less than 24 hours. Bitcoin has enjoyed a stunning rise this year, drawing increasing attention from mainstream investors. After starting the year below $1,000, it hit the major milestone of $10,000 just last week. Despite a flurry of warnings from top economists and business leaders, its upward trajectory has continued -- albeit with a few sharp dips along the way.
