Bitcoin Setting New Highs over $4000 Fueled by Japanese Demand

The Bitcoin price has soared to new highs over $4000 and ramping up to $4183 on Cryptocompare. Many are questioning what the reasons for this surge in price. According to reports below, the Japanese Yen is the highest traded Bitcoin volume at this time.
