Bitcoin is rising again after having the biggest plunge in price in 20 days. The start of the month saw a more than 8% increase in bitcoin price.
The fresh gains come as institutes bend on adopting cryptocurrency. Retail investors’ interest in crypto is growing. Lately, big companies have added bitcoin to their asset base. Moreover, traditional financial services providers are conceding the potential of digital assets.
Mastercard, the global financial services corporation, is set to facilitate cryptocurrency transactions in 2021. Whereas the oldest bank of U.S BNY Mellon has announced that it will finance bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
The crypto’s prices were on an upward trajectory following the adoption by the financial industry. However, the strength broke down in the latter half of February. Bitcoin went down from record highs above $58,000 to as low as $43,000 in the seven days to Feb. 28, as the U.S. 10-year yield jumped to 12-month highs, above 1.6%, sending stock markets lower.
The overall price of cryptocurrency fell by 21% within a week. It is the biggest 7-days drop in price since March last year.
Bitcoin Is Rising But So Is Uncertainty:
Bitcoin is rising again after big whales’ incessant buying of the dip. Altcoins are also increasing in price. At the time of this writing, BTC’s price is $48,500 with a nearly 5% gain in the past 24 hours. Whereas Ether’s price is $1,543 with an 8% gain.
The crypto market looks promising today. Nonetheless, analysts believe that there will be price corrections and pullbacks following the sudden surge.
