Bitcoin’s price has surged to a new record-breaking high of $4,890, as the price of rival currency ethereum climbed up to just below $400.

The volatile cryptocurrency’s record-breaking run has continued, with its value soaring above $4,700 for the first time on August 29.

Bitcoin's price has fluctuated closely to a previous high of $,4,522 for much of August and even slumped back to below $4,000 on August 22.

But what next? A Goldman Sachs investment banker predicted the price of bitcoin would continue to rise in a recent note to clients.

“Whether or not you believe in the merit of investing in cryptocurrencies (you know who you are), real dollars are at work here and warrant watching,” the report said.

However, Sheba Jafari, a technical strategist at Goldman Sachs, warned the bubble could burst and the price could eventually fall back to below $3,000.

But Aaron Lasher, co-founder of Breadwallet, is more optimistic - he predicts the value of bitcoin will keep on rising over the next five years.

“Are cryptos in a bubble? Yes, absolutely,” he told MarketWatch. “Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily.

“The long-term trend is up, however, so past bubbles look less impressive in the rearview mirror.

“Do I know how high this bubble will go? Will I be selling any bitcoin before, during, or after the bubble? No.”

Meanwhile, the price of ethereum, the rising star of the cryptocurrency world, has risen to a high of $394.32.

The price rise of bitcoin, litecoin and ethereum puts the overall value of the cryptocurrency market at record $170bn, coindesk reports.

They add the price of bitcoin is now up more than 350 per cent this year.

Glad to see that bitcoin and ETH has reach new height, but unfortunately we are seeing dumping right now. Bitcoin just a shade above $4500 now and ETH at $350. Although I'm pretty much disappointed seeing the price going red after a weeks record, I consider this healthy is a sense that other investors could buy at this dip. I just don't have the funds right now, but If I do, I will get it today. Will not wait till it drops more because I don't want to miss the opportunity to earn at least a few hundred bucks. Let's see if I'm correct at this one because I'm positive that other investors as much as can't resist to sell at $5000, will also buy at this rate. IMHO.
