All Eyes On Bitcoin

On November 14th 2018, the leading crypto by market cap, Bitcoin recorded a steep drop. As of today, this virtual coin has indicated certain signs of smooth growth, consolidating the gains it has recorded over the last couple of days to near the price point of $5,600. At the moment, BTC is trading at $5,595, having moved up with almost 0.9% just within a single day. November 16th saw the leading virtual coin drop to $5,371 plummet, which was $1,000 much lower than its two days’ earlier value.

The week has ended with Bitcoin trading either upwards and sideways and many have associated the market tumble to the effects of the powerful Bitcoin Cash hard fork. In a Twitter poll that was done on November 15th by Ron Paul, the US Congressman, 50% of the respondents picked BTC as their favorite store of value if they had to invest more than $10,000.
