Bitcoin continued gaining on Sunday, rising to a fresh high and extending a two-month rally that took its market capitalization above US$1-trillion on Friday.

The world’s most popular cryptocurrency rose to a record US$58,354, taking its weekly gain to around 20 per cent. It has surged around 100 per cent this year.
