A swing in the volatility could also be attributed to the fact that the CME Bitcoin futures for the October month are expiring as Tweeted by the popular crypto trader, Crypto squeeze who also mentioned a movement of “I’m thinking $120,”


The green seems to be back with enthusiasm as the global stock market is falling in the bear territory. As we reported yesterday, the US stock market from S&P 500, FTSE, to Nasdaq along with Asian stock market is falling. The tech stocks are bearing the brunt of the losses while the dollar strengthens.

A positive news came from China as after banning the Bitcoin and cryptos in the country, now the Chinese court rules BItcoin is protected by law as property due to the fact that the laws and regulations of the country do not prohibit the ownership and transferring of Bitcoin.

Meanwhile, Visa CEO Al Kelly, recently shared that whenever the need arises they will integrate crypto,

“If we actually think that crypto starts moving from being more of a commodity to actually really being a payment instrument…If it goes in that direction, we will move in that direction. We want to be in the middle, Jim, of every payment flow in the world regardless of how it happens or what the currency is behind it. So if we have to go there, we will go there. But right now, it’s more of a commodity than a payment vehicle.”
