What you should know

When the World Health Organisation declared COVID-19 a pandemic, and several industries started shutting down, the Nigerian government took the decision to leave Nigerian ports operation in line with stipulated guidelines.

This was done to prevent further contraction in the economy, as the economic implications of shutting down the seaports in an import-dependent economy were considered unsavory.

The government decided that, just like the food and healthcare sectors, the ports were to be considered essential too since there was a need to keep a steady import of foods, refined petroleum products, raw materials for the local industries, finished consumer goods and most importantly, drugs for the healthcare system.

Managing Director of the NPA, Hadiza Bala-Usman, also suspended applicable terminal storage fees on consignments for an initial period of 21 days effective 23 March, and agreed to fast-track the clearance of over 1,500 overtime cargoes as part of its efforts to promote ease of business.

What it will take Bitcoin to hit $100,000?

For the flagship currency to hit $100,000, Bitcoin will need to have a market capitalization of $2.1 trillion. That is about a quarter of the market capitalization of gold.

According to Option trader, Theta Seek stated that for this incredible feat to happen is to envision consistent buying demand from retail investors. The trader said:

“At 100K per BTC, the market has to absorb a miner supply of $90 Million USD daily. Assuming that there are 10 million people worldwide buying BTC on a regular basis. It would cost them each $9 daily to sustain those price levels. I’ve met people who spend more than $9 on coffee.”

Theta Seek added that hodlers—a term used to define long time Bitcoin holders, most of them have not sold throughout the past three all-time highs of BTC, noting:

“Data suggests otherwise though, hodlers throughout the past three all-time highs have not been selling in significant portions. 60% of BTC has not moved for more than 2 years. Even if that were to be true, the longtime supply of BTC will eventually equal the mining (new) supply.”
