Lunar day madness as Jeff Bezos rumored to be eyeing Bitcoin payments for Amazon

Crypto at a glance

A perfect storm of bullish news has swept Bitcoin on the crest of the waves into the new week, with an astronaut, social media mogul, and rapper steering the ship back to the dizzying heights of $ 40,000. But are things just getting started?

After Bitcoin price began last week on news that Tesla was considering accepting the cryptocurrency again for payment, Bitcoin price rose 15 percent last night to over $ 39,000 for the first time since June 17. Yesterday was in the green for the sixth straight day, while at that point the value rose more than 20 percent, although at the time of writing the price has since dropped to around $ 38,000 since then.

This outbreak appears to have been triggered by a much more mass-market retailer than Tesla, which accepts the world’s largest cryptocurrency. Yesterday’s reports, citing an insider familiar with the matter, said Amazon plans to accept Bitcoin payments “by the end of the year.”

Jeff Bezos is not satisfied with going into space, but wants to go to the moon. A source within Amazon told our own Darren Parkin, editor of Crypto AM, that “It starts with Bitcoin – this is the first major phase of this crypto project, and the directive comes from the very top … Jeff Bezos himself.”

He is also joined by the Twitter CEO and renowned Bitcoin bull Jack Dorsey, who is once again promoting Bitcoin use cases on the microblogging platform. Dorsey said on the company’s second quarter conference call that Bitcoin will be a “big part” of the company’s future and has the potential to further transform Twitter’s products and services.

The Bitcoin outbreak appears to have dragged other cryptocurrencies with it, with everything at stake today. The total value of all cryptocurrencies is more than $ 1.5 trillion for the first time since June, with Ethereum rising seven percent to more than $ 2,300 in the past 24 hours, Cardano up nine percent to $ 1.35 Dollar and Bitcoin Cash up 11 percent to over $ 500.

Busta Rhymes has a lot of fun tweeting about it. Even the hype men are getting an upgrade.
