Considering that this most recent jump was in part driven by people that were sitting on the sidelines or who had even just heard about bitcoin for the first time due to the $800 price fanfare, it is possible that this news will also attract such people and propel the BTC/USD exchange rate to $1000 per blockchain token in a short time.
