Bitcoin Planet's official Twitter account is @bitcoin_planet_. The Reddit community for Bitcoin Plus is /r/bitcoin and the currency's Github account can be viewed here.

Traders who had bet against the cryptocurrency were forced to buy back into the market.

Cryptocurrency prices jumped on Thursday, led by a 10 percent surge in bitcoin to two-week highs, though analysts said they were unsure of what had triggered the spike. The tax deadline in the U.S.is April 17, and anyone who bought or sold bitcoin in 2017 will have to pay taxes on it because the IRS has deemed all cryptocurrencies to be property subject to the capital gains tax. Investors seeking to acquire Bitcoin Plus must first purchase Bitcoin or Ethereum using an exchange that deals in USA dollars such as GDAX, Coinbase or Gemini.

On the Luxembourg-based Bitstamp exchange BTC=BTSP, bitcoin spiked as much as 14 percent at one point in mid-morning European trading and by 1225 GMT was up 10.3 percent at $7,657, its highest level since March 28.
