It turns out that after the publication of Facebook’s whitepaper, the project aroused controversy among many cryptocurrency and blockchain technology experts, and raised concerns among government organizations.

Bitcoin will cost $21.000 by the end of the year?

Recently, there is a lot of talk about Bitcoin’s price, of which we reported here. It is not surprising then that analysts are outdistancing each other in predicting higher prices. Trace Mayer, host of the Bitcoin Knowledge podcast, according to calculations based on a 200-day moving average, said that Bitcoin’s price at the end of the year will reach a new ATH of $21,000.

More and more BTMs in the world

The number of BTMs (bitcoin ATMs) in the world has reached a breakthrough number of over 5000, according to CoinATMRadar – 5009 to be exact. BTMs are deployed in 90 countries. In June there were 150 of them added all over the world. Currently, the largest number of BTMs is in the USA (3229).

A board member of Deutsche Bank speaks about the attractiveness of Bitcoin

Recently, it has been said that the US central bank may lower interest rates. According to Jim Reid from Deutsche Bank, this has affected the recent increases in Bitcoin’s price. As Fed chairman Jerome Powell said, interest rate cuts are to be caused by inflationary risk and the latest economic uncertainty. This also affected the dollar exchange rate, which is the weakest against the euro in three months. Reid also stressed that the new Facebook project – the Libra cryptocurrency – is responsible for the increase of Bitcoin’s price.
