Such strong demand on the world’s flagship crypto asset by large entities is keeping it within striking distance of $60,000. At the time of writing this report, Bitcoin traded at $57,048.20 with a daily trading volume of $52,720,140,286. Bitcoin is up 0.97% for the day.
As large entities accumulate BTCs, bitcoin’s circulating supply reduces, and this can weaken any bearish trend bitcoin finds itself in.
- The flagship crypto has gotten more endorsements in recent weeks from blue-chip companies like Mastercard and America’s oldest bank, BNY Mellon, which showed support for Bitcoin. Mastercard had earlier disclosed that it would open up its network to some cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin.
- PayPal and the world’s largest asset fund manager, BlackRock, have also made big moves to support crypto.
- This also means that over time, it’s possible that as the world’s most popular crypto asset approaches its fixed supply of 21 million, the price of BTC will go up, with BTC’s present demand factored in.
Based on prevailing market conditions, Bitcoin now has a market value of $1.063 trillion.
