A sudden spike in Bitcoin on Wednesday brought the largest cryptocurrency out of the narrow range where it’s spent most of the past week. 

Bitcoin jumped as much as 5.7% to $41,691 before giving up some gains and trading at $40,915 at 10:43 a.m. in Hong Kong. Other tokens like Ether and Solana also enjoyed brief spikes. It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the sharp gains.

Meanwhile, selling by short-term investors has kept Bitcoin and other digital assets from mounting sustainable gains.
