BTC on the Rise

Bitcoin’s price has this week increased above 11,000 USD for the first time since passing the milestone in mid July, peaking above 12,250 USD before stabilizing somewhat in the mid to low 11,000’s to end Tuesday. Wednesday has seen it yet again pass the 12,000 threshold, with analysts believing that the hurdle will prove significant in restarting the Bitcoin price rally.

A number of factors contributing to volatility in the currency’s price, such as the U.S. Senate’s hearing over Facebook Libra, led to a decline towards the end of the month, with lows of $9,350 observed. …

Two weeks after the Libra Senate Hearing, the US Senate Banking Committee held an official hearing on the regulation frameworks that currently exist in the crypto industry in the US, and whether those regulations are helping or hurting consumers using financial services.

With the conversations fixated on the Libra project and its potential development for worldwide use, the Senate has established various concerns on the idea that a big, global corporation like Facebook will be overseeing billions of user data points and facilitating financial payments. However, there are other small and medium enterprises that are making waves in the market.

Although it is evident that blockchain technology has proven to be secure and efficient, the hearing has addressed valid concerns on further expanding crypto adoption for the everyday consumer to shift innovation and technology trends. …

Please welcome a new superstar to the Coinberry features roster! Our development wizards at Coinberry have implemented a systematic crypto purchasing feature called AutoPilot.

AutoPilot might seem like a new concept for crypto but is, in fact, a known strategy in investing, for the long term, called dollar cost averaging.

When markets fluctuate a user can purchase cryptocurrency for a lower cost in a falling market, will not time their purchase to avoid a peak in a rising market, and will stay invested in a rather flat market — ensuring that over the long run the troughs and the highs will average themselves out leading to an “average” cost which could reduce exposure to the volatile crypto market fluctuations — avoiding the strong temptation to “time the market”. …
