Yesterday was the apparent peak of a short, sharp spike in the Bitcoin price starting the day before. The price went from around $220 to around $265 and is currently hanging at $242. This may correspond with news that the impending "BitLicense" laws in New York state may not be as harsh as previously anticipated.
Astrologically, we'd be looking for a trigger that's slower than the Sun, Mercury, and Venus because those planets tend to only affect the price for a day. Mars is not forming any clear aspects to the Bitcoin chart, and would probably have a negative effect in most cases. An outer planet (Jupiter and beyond) might bring an event of significantly longer duration. My guess: transiting Vesta, which is currently forming a conjunction with the Bitcoin North Node at nine degrees Aquarius.
