A record breaking day for Ethereum as Soros looks to Bitcoin

Crypto at a glance

It was another stop-start day for Bitcoin as intriguing adoption news couldn’t drive the price up. Meanwhile, a record breaking day for Ethereum is keeping the second largest cryptocurrency in the spotlight today. Will July see it stay there?

The big story yesterday was that billionaire George Soros’s family office started trading Bitcoin. The Street reported from sources “familiar with the matter” that Dawn Fitzpatrick, Soros Fund Management’s chief investment officer, had given the go-ahead to trading Bitcoin and possibly other cryptocurrencies over the past few weeks. The company declined to comment.

Soros Fund Management has also reportedly been assisted by Steve Cohen’s Point72 Asset Management, which is reportedly seeking a new position as Head of Cryptocurrencies. The recent drop in Bitcoin prices has been credited by some as a result of a slowdown in institutional investment in the area, but could the tide turn again?

The news didn’t do much for Bitcoin’s pricing fortune, however. The leading cryptocurrency continued to hover around $ 35,000 yesterday and fell to around $ 33,500 this morning as it remains in that narrow range.

But there was better news elsewhere. Bitcoin may have outperformed other major cryptocurrencies in June, down just 2.7 percent over the month, up from more than 15 percent for others, but Ethereum will carry the burden well into July. The second largest cryptocurrency is up 1.5 percent again this morning to $ 2,160 after rebounding to almost $ 2,300 yesterday. It even made a piece of history yesterday when it first overtook Bitcoin in daily active addresses. The number of daily active addresses exceeded 649,000, while Bitcoin fell to around 580,000, according to analyst Santiment. A temporary rash or a sign of the future?

Convince your Nan: Soundbite of the day

“I met a woman who had a small pizzeria and told me that she had six children. Four of them emigrated to the United States. Consequently, they sent their money back – that was before the project. She regularly had to spend up to a day taking the bus to the nearest town that had a proper office or bank to pick up the transfer, paying a huge fee to actually pick it up, and then doing business and the abandoned income returned while she took the bus into town to get the transfer. She started with Bitcoin and was able to save so much that she actually started sending money to her child in the US instead of getting money back. So that’s just one example of the wire transfer question, the time it takes to pick it up, the fees involved, and the problems these organizers are trying to solve when using Bitcoin to make these transactions easier. “
