Donald Trump Not A Fan Of Bitcoin; Is This The Reason For Bitcoin Price To Descend?
Just when the crypto community and Bitcoin lovers thought that this would be a lingering Bull Run, Bitcoin started falling again. It is since yesterday i.e. 11th July that the price trend lost its surging momentum. While the community and the investors were gawking with high hopes about the price to rise again soon, nothing great really happened though. Meanwhile, Donald Trump, the most powerful and influential person remarked that he is not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies. Well, is this the reason for Bitcoin and other altcoins to show a plunging trend?
I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air. Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity….
