Bitcoin jumps to a six-month high as 2019 rally grows

The original and biggest virtual coin climbed as much as 4.5 percent in early trading to top $5,600 briefly, touching its highest since November 18.

The original and biggest virtual coin climbed as much as 4.5 percent in early trading to top $5,600 briefly, touching its highest since November 18.
