The world’s most well-known cryptocurrency traded at a fresh record high above $20,000 on Wednesday, nearly three years after the asset slumped as it attempted to breach a similar price.

Bitcoin prices BTCUSD, 9.36% were trading at $20,809 according to CoinDesk data, up nearly 7.3% on the session, with gains for the digital asset supported by a flood of institutional investor attention on cryptos like bitcoin and other virtual currencies.

The renewed run-up for bitcoin, which was created in 2009, also comes as central banks weigh the case for digital currencies and payment platforms move to include them.

Back in October, PayPal Holdings said it would allow customers to buy cryptocurrency through their accounts and use cryptocurrency for merchant payments, which lent some legitimacy of the nascent asset.

Wednesday’s rally for bitcoin comes as the Federal Reserve is set to provide a fresh update on its monetary policy plans amid the global viral epidemic that has slammed economies worldwide and forced governments to spend outsize funds to limit the damage.

“There is clearly a view in the community that all of this central bank easing provides a bullish case for bitcoin and with the crypto closing in on new record highs and, importantly, $20,000, this could well be the point when it explodes higher into uncharted territory,” wrote Craig Erlam,  senior market analyst, in a Wednesday note.
