Following a first quarter of declines in 2018, Bitcoin has jumped sharply in recent days to $8450 Sunday morning, up 5% over the past 24 hours.

The cryptocurrency market is eyeing a move towards the $350 billion region and it has already crossed $334 billion, according to CCN.

Bitcoin is still down 50 percent from its all-time high at $19,000 back in December.

Over the past week, many alternative cryptocurrencies (altcoins) like 0x, OmiseGo, STORM, and WanChain have outperformed bitcoin, CCN also noted.

An end to the U.S. tax season may be contributing to the surge, some experts believe.

Bitcoin SV as Turing Complete System

There is a controversy that's been emerging in the cryptocurrency community that claims Bitcoin cannot be used as a turing complete system.  In computability theory, a system of data-manipulation rules is said to be Turing-complete or computationally universal if it can be used to simulate any Turing machine, meaning the ability to recognize or decide other data-manipulation rule sets.
