Crypto at a glance
It’s another Red Sea today as all major cryptocurrencies have seen their prices fall in the past 24 hours.
Bitcoin is down about three percent to just over $ 33,000, which is in the same tight range that it has been trading in the last month or so. The situation is similar with Ethereum and other large alt-coins, most of which have also fallen by four to five percent. There is still talk of the calm before the storm, but the calm seems to last an awfully long time.
Ironically, according to blockchain intelligence company Glassnode, that period could be the result of the influx of institutional investors over the past year. In their daily newsletter, they noted that “2020 and 2021 will mark the arrival of financial institutions in the crypto space. We celebrated, we cheered. But we forgot one thing: the people who work at these financial giants love the summer vacation. ”Will all systems work again when they get back from their beach houses?
It may be quiet on the price front, but the rumor mill is still simmering. The big gossip that got around yesterday was that Apple will announce a massive investment in Bitcoin. While it can easily be described as social media fantasy land, it even found its way into mainstream media. With nearly $ 200 billion in cash in the latest quarterly report, even a tiny fraction would be a huge sum. But is there any truth in that or just wishful thinking from Bitcoin fans?
Back in the real world, South America’s love affair with Bitcoin is getting stronger. Argentine Congressman José Luis Ramón tabled a bill last week that would allow workers to receive their full or partial salary in bitcoin. Ramón stated that this would mean that “Argentina can strengthen their autonomy and maintain the purchasing power of their remuneration”.
