The great bitcoin boom of 2017 is going from strength to strength.

The virtual currency rocketed above $9,000 for the first time on Sunday and was trading above $9,500 by Monday morning in Asia.

Stock markets around the world have been on a tear this year, but their gains are paltry compared with bitcoin's. The digital currency, which only rose above $8,000 about a week ago, has surged an incredible 860% since the start of the year.

Despite skepticism from some top finance executives about bitcoin's rise, experts say the latest gains appear to have been fueled by expectations that big professional investors -- such as hedge funds and asset managers -- could soon pour money into the currency.

Even a small portion of the cash managed by major funds "would make a dramatic impact on the bitcoin market," said Thomas Glucksmann, head of marketing at Hong Kong bitcoin exchange Gatecoin.

The cryptocurrency has been gaining more legitimacy in some parts of the financial industry.

From early next month, investors should be able to trade bitcoin futures via the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, which is likely to help bolster the currency's reputation among mainstream investors. Futures allow traders to bet on the future price of assets like currencies, metals and agricultural commodities.

The backing of a major exchange is encouraging institutional investors "to dip their toes into the bitcoin market," Glucksmann said. He expects more professional investors to put money into it if it breaches $10,000.

The virtual currency has famously attracted the derision of JPMorgan Chase (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon, who called it a "fraud" that would "eventually blow up." But other leading figures in finance, including Goldman Sachs (GS) CEO Lloyd Blankfein have defended it.

Shane Chanel, an adviser at investment firm ASR Wealth Advisers, predicts bitcoin will hit $12,000 within the next six months.

"Greed will continue to drive the price over the short term," he said. But he warned that any setbacks in the introduction of bitcoin futures over the next few weeks could prompt a "dramatic short-term tumble."

Bitcoin's path toward $9,500 hasn't been smooth. It's suffered periods of major volatility along the way.

In September, it plunged as much as 20% after the Chinese government cracked down on offerings in the digital currency, prompting bitcoin exchanges to close their doors.

Earlier this month, it plummeted by up to 30% within the space of a few days, before quickly bouncing back, after it appeared traders were switching to rival cryptocurrencies.

Cryptocurrencies are virtual "coins" that are "mined" by computers completing complex algorithms. Bitcoin is the most famous and widely used one.

I think so far there are no barriers, so that the price of bitcoin fell. People only show more interest in bitcoin. And ahead are new frontiers and new victories

Meanwhile there a lot of people who still count bitcoin as a pyramid or babble. Who would think that bitcoin will climb so close to 10000$, which many of users so much desire?! I hope this new highs will prove to every one who still doubt that bitcoin is not a scam, that the future is standing behind this crypto currency.

Yes, the more the price of bitcoin goes higher, the more people will really doubt that is actually a bubble. And bitcoin has been a bubble in there theory but it only shows recovery, which is not possible if the so called bubble has burst. As for the barriers, I also don't see coming in the next month so I'm expecting that $10K will be meet.

Although I must admit the the road to 5 digits is very quick, corrections is deem needed but I don't know when this rally will stop. I'm expecting that $10K will be touch at the beginning December, but I wouldn't be surprise if we get there in the middle of this week. No barriers, no negative news= smooth sailing to $10K.

I believe that CME speculation is a major contributor towards current growth, and for that reason might push the market well above the $10,000 in the coming days. It might likely trigger some older hands to unload a fair bit of coins at these levels, which is why I took profits as soon as the market went over $9500 today. Right now it will be interesting to see how the market is going to act. It will either remain fairly conservative below $10,000 for the time being, because it's an important mental barrier. Or it will smoothly break through it and then trigger a correction shortly after that. In order to stay on the safe side, I took profits at my target price of around the $9500 level.
