The well-rested Bitcoin bull has finally escaped the cage — and is on the rampage!

Bitcoin had surged six per cent to a new all-time high of $US64,325 ($83,931) this afternoon after spending a month moving sideways, and nearly every other cryptocurrency was soaring alongside it.

Ethereum, Chainlink, Dogecoin, THORChain, XDC, Cardano (ADA) and FTX Token had all smashed through their all-time records around 3pm AEDT, ahead of Coinbase’s direct NASDAQ listing in the overnight hours.

At 2.53pm AEDT, 74 of the top 100 coins on Coingecko had gained, with 23 of them soaring by double-digits.

Dogecoin was the top gainer — up 48 per cent in the past 24 hours to US11c. The meme coin  hit an all-time peak of US11.5c around 1pm, and is up about  fourteenfold from the US0.8c level it was trading at as recently as late January.

Generally there’s been a pullback after every massive crypto surge. But that seemed the last thing on anyone’s mind in the Crypto Twitter sphere this afternoon.
