Closing at $10,793 on Sunday (Sept. 27), bitcoin set a record with 63 straight days of closing above $10,000, according to CoinDesk.

This time around, the range has been sitting between $10,000 and $12,500, according to CoinDesk.
Coin Metrics statistics show that the 180-day returns volatility for bitcoin is down 41 percent so far in September, CoinDesk reported.
The closes over $10,000 haven’t been this high in some time, according to a chart from CoinDesk, with the only dates close being 28 days in July 2019 and 25 days in June 2019.
In other news, CoinFlip will now offer a bitcoin-enabled gift card marketplace, according to a report by Bitcoin Magazine.
The marketplace came about through a partnership with eGifter and will allow for the sale of gift cards in exchange for bitcoin.
That will allow more underbanked residents to invest in bitcoin through CoinFlip and also exchange the cryptocurrency for goods and services. The ultimate goal for bitcoin is to become a currency that can be used anywhere just like most mainstream currencies, such as cash or debit cards, CoinFlip reported, but the idea of using gift cards as a middleman between it and retailers is an important step.
