The world’s flagship crypto seems to be on the rise, as it recently experienced a price increase.

This feat was triggered by the price volatility recorded throughout the previous week with U.S Federal Reserve Chairman’s speech at Jackson Hole and the recent expiration of some BTC futures

At the time this report was drafted, BTC was trading at around $11,600, with a daily trading volume of about $19 billion.

This recent price upgrade recorded reveals the bulls have been able to keep the price away from its previous resistance level ($11,500) as crypto traders and investors now shift their focus on the $12,000 price level.

However, since the previous fake breakout recorded above $12,000 price level about three weeks ago, the recent price momentum seems to suggest a price rejection could occur in the near time as BTC price touches the $11,700 price tag, meaning Nairametrics anticipate the price of Bitcoin could likely experience a temporary pullback to the $11,200 support area before rallying higher.

It should also be noted that the very first crypto asset ever created is Bitcoin. On Oct. 31, 2008, an individual (or group of people) under the pseudonym “Satoshi Nakamoto” published the now-world famous Bitcoin white paper.

BTC holds a maximum supply of about 21 million digital coins of which there are about 18.5 million in circulation, while over 4 million BTCs have already been lost forever.

Bitcoin is actually distributed via an accounting ledger that is stored in a form of a chain of blocks, known as the blockchain.

Investors are anxiously waiting for the legal outcome filed against Ripple, creators of XRP, as the digital asset, recorded decent gains amid recent price market correction prevailing at the crypto-verse

Investors are holding firm on reports that revealed Christian Larsen, the Chairman of Ripple, has joined company CEO Brad Garlinghouse in passing a motion to dismiss the charges filed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In a court letter filed recently, the Chairman of Ripple’s attorneys provided facts detailing their reasons on why the legal case against the Ripple executive should be struck.

According to the letter, the SEC has not been able to prove its evidence that the Ripple top executive“knowingly or recklessly provided substantial assistance” towards the violation of Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933.

  • Recall some months back, Ripple revealed to the public that it was informed by the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission that they had plans to sue the founders in a Federal civil court. Ripple and its top lieutenants further disclosed that they planned to fight such allegations.
  • Ripple has however significantly upgraded on how it manages XRP, relinquishing control of the future development of XRP over to independent developers.

But it still holds about 6.4 billion XRP directly and has an additional 48 billion XRP held in an escrow from which it periodically sells to the public.

It has so far distributed 45 billion XRP since its debut. That is different from the ways in which bitcoin is created and distributed.

The Bitcoin market you know today was built by people, not institutions

This dominant and decentralized currency has proven that people can be its driving force, as its users practically own the market.

Published

Bitcoin recently gained significant global attention, as the richest man in the world, Elon Musk, invested 1.5 billion USD in it. This asset, which was selling for under 1 USD just 11 years ago, has reached new highs in the market with a current price of over 40,000 USD—a phenomenal growth in a decade that no asset class in the market can match.

Some institutions and jurisdictions seem threatened by the existence of digital currencies, which is why the occasional objection about Bitcoin has surfaced on the Internet. Still, this dominant and decentralized currency has proven that people can be its driving force, as its users practically own the market.

A few years ago, when people were still skeptical and unconvinced about BTC and its potential, there were those in the industry driven by the ideology that this asset class could create a better global financial system. The reality is that transferring money and processing payments using the current financial system comes with some setbacks.

In one way or another, monetary transactions using traditional payment systems can be laborious and limited, especially to those who have no access to banks and other financial services. This motivated Ray Youssef and Artur Schaback to create a platform that can reach billions of people worldwide.

They explored Bitcoin and discovered opportunities to provide people access to a new financial market. This discovery and enthusiasm led to the creation of Paxful.com, a peer-to-peer trading platform that enables people to buy and sell crypto with anyone, anywhere, at any time.

Currently, Paxful offers over 350 ways to buy and sell Bitcoin and other digital currencies, making it easy for anyone to acquire fractions of BTC and join in on the 900 billion dollar market. Ultimately, Bitcoin has the potential to help people support various financial limitations by allowing them to:

  • Pay for goods and services
  • Donate to charitable organizations
  • Build and grow a business
  • Protect the value of their wealth
  • Send money faster at a cheaper rate

Apart from providing financial opportunities through the platform, Paxful also uses BTC to uphold quality life and education through the Built With Bitcoin initiative. Every crypto donation goes towards the construction of schools in emerging markets to empower people through learning to live a better life.

The platform has and continues to financially enable millions of people around the world through digital currencies. It’s never too late to start—join the growing Bitcoin community today and be a part of the global people-powered market.
