The bitcoin price punched through $6,600 on Monday, marking another important step in its latest attempt to break out of a bear market that has now endured for a full six months.

The flagship cryptocurrency had entered the day on a sideways trajectory, holding close to $6,350 for most of the morning. At approximately 13:25 UTC, however, the bitcoin price made a sudden leap from $6,400 to $6,600, ultimately climbing as high as $6,681 but failing — thus far, at least — to break through $6,700.

At present, bitcoin is priced at $6,619 on Bitfinex, representing a 24-hour increase of five percent. The rally extended a recovery that began last week, shortly after the bitcoin price fell to a year-to-date low of $5,780.

Notably, bitcoin’s performance has been mimicked by every other large-cap cryptocurrency, most of whom have actually seen greater leaps against the dollar. Top performers include EOS, NEO, and NEM, whose prices have increased by 12 percent, 18 percent, and 15 percent, respectively.
