XMR price increase started this morning, and within just an hour it went up from $200 to $232 (press time). The market cap has also increased from $3.2 bln to $6.6 bln. Interesting to note that this surge happened exactly 4 years after the token has been launched in 2014, and since then it had a significant progress. Only last year this day the price of Monero was just $20.53. In addition, on Friday Monero successfully completed a hard fork designed to protect the network from certain ASIC miners.
