SEC labels Bitcoin a commodity premium
Regulation of the crypto market has taken a crucial move forward following comments made earlier this week by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Gary Gensler. During an interview with CNBC, Gensler said Bitcoin should now be labelled as a commodity. As I was quoted by Investor Ideas, Mena FN, Share Wise, StockHead and Biz Community, amongst others, the SEC Chairman’s comments have cleared up years of debate. Bitcoin is now viewed as a commodity by one of the most influential regulators in the world, just like gold, and not a Read More

Will Bitcoin rally to hit a new ATH of $75k in 2022? premium
Bitcoin will rally from the latest cryptocurrency crash to hit a new record high of $75,000 by the end of this year. That’s my latest prediction, even as Bitcoin’s price declined under the $40k mark a number of times on Monday, impacting the wider crypto sector. The total crypto market is down $1.89 trillion currently, an 11% fall compared to last week. What we’ve seen is Bitcoin briefly falling under $40,000, tracking losses in global equities. The correlation with Read More

Will Bitcoin reach $50,000 by end of March? premium
The price of Bitcoin may likely reach $50,000 before the end of March due to mounting geopolitical tensions and growing institutional investments. Over the past 24 hours we’ve seen the world’s largest cryptocurrency surge by over $6,000 to surpass the $44,000 mark – the steepest daily rise since February last year. As such, I can’t see any reason why the price momentum should weaken, so I believe Bitcoin will hit $50,000 by the end of March. Of course, it’s still Read More

Geopolitics puts Bitcoin to the test – what now? premium
Geopolitical issues such as the mounting Ukraine-Russia tensions, will fuel Bitcoin’s increasing mass adoption and higher values in 2022. Even with the 5% decline over the weekend. Looking back over the past few weeks, serious geopolitical risks have shown real-life use cases for Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in incredibly volatile times. As I was quoted by Forbes and Tech Telegraph, amongst other media, according to research, donations in Bitcoin have been flooding into Read More

Is the IMF worried about the future of finance? premium
The International Monetary Fund urging El Salvador to reverse its decision on making Bitcoin legal tender is baffling. The central American country became the first to make the world’s largest cryptocurrency legal tender back in September last year. Naturally, the situation in El Salvador needs to lot of careful monitoring to ensure the Bitcoin rollout really does benefit the people. Yet the IMF pressing the country to ditch such a pioneering financial policy in an attempt to Read More

A global poll has shown that Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies and NFTs are more trusted than stocks to provide investors with better returns in 2022. Around 6,000 people on LinkedIn have taken part in the survey since the start of the year, which is monitored by over 146,600.

Bitcoin to be made legal tender in three more nations this year? premium
I’m putting it out there. It’s my view that Bitcoin will become legal tender in another three countries this year. Over the weekend, the President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele posted a number of tweets relating to his Bitcoin predictions, such as “2 more countries will adopt it as legal tender,” and that it will reach $100,000 this year. Indeed, El Salvador made history in September last year by becoming the first country in the world to make the Read More

History in the making as El Salvador adopts Bitcoin as legal tender premium
As El Salvador becomes the first country in the world to make Bitcoin official legal tender on Tuesday, I will explain to BBC News tomorrow why it could help boost the country’s economic growth and jobs. The smallest country in Central America will adopt the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market cap as national currency alongside the U.S. dollar. As it stands, outside of the U.S. and its territories, there are seven other sovereign nations using the Read More

Ethereum’s rise to the top seems unstoppable premium
Ethereum will keep outperforming Bitcoin this year and ultimately surpass its rival’s value. Yes, I recognise it’s a bold prediction, but looking at the stats, Ethereum is up around 240% in 2021, compared to less than 38% for Bitcoin. In fact, ETH has outperformed all other benchmark assets in the first six months of the year. As I was quoted by City AM and Cointelegraph, amongst other media, there are two principal reasons that are fuelling Ethereum’s performance this Read More

Crypto Crash: Crypto-haters are wrong premium
Bitcoin and other digital currencies experienced a major sell-off this week following the crackdown by China. However, the crypto cynics should not rebuff cryptocurrencies. It’s been something of a turbulent week for crypto. Around $400 billion has been wiped off the total digital currency market since last Friday, when a key Bitcoin mining hub instructed miners to cease operations. This followed reports that the People’s Bank of China ordered banks to freeze all payment Read More

Wednesday 9June was a momentous day for crypto. El Salvador became the first country in the world to adopt Bitcoin as official legal tender. The Legislative Assembly of El Salvador voted to pass a bill that declared Bitcoin as legal tender, as per the Communications Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic of El Salvador, receiving 62 out of 84 votes. As I was quoted by Forbes, Yahoo News, City AM and Verdict, amongst others, although it is the first to adopt the Read More
