Bitcoin rallied past $8,000, extending its longest winning streak since 2013 while giving fresh momentum to a cryptocurrency market that crashed only last year. Just hours after leaping 25 percent Monday with no apparent explanation, the largest digital token added as much as 5.9 percent Tuesday. That helped push the crypto universe's total market value to almost $250 billion -- a level not seen since last August -- as tokens including XRP, Ethereum and Dash all advanced more than 4 percent.The Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index, which tracks a basket of the largest digital assets, added as much as 9.3 percent before paring the gain to 6.8 percent.
