Welcome to today’s overview of crypto news:


BTC reached a new nearly three-month high of $ 46,800 yesterday as the Bears regained control of the market. After reaching the top, the asset began to lose value somewhat quickly. This resulted in a drop in price of $ 4,000, after which BTC fell below $ 44,000 for the second time in less than a week.

At this point, however, the bulls intervened and reversed the cryptocurrency. BTC set out on a journey, recovering $ 44,000 and $ 45,000 in a matter of hours and embarking on another phase of growth. In the latter, he reconquered $ 46,000. Since yesterday’s slump, BTC has managed to add another roughly $ 2,500 and is currently above $ 46,000.

Most altcoins also corrected yesterday, with ETH dropping to just over $ 3,000. However, the second largest digital asset rebounded nicely and is currently trading above $ 3,200.

Argentina President: There is no reason to push against the adoption of BTC

The Argentine president said that there was no reason why the country should oppose the possible adoption of BTC. El Salvador’s decision to accept the BTC as legal tender has sparked discussion in Central and South America. The Argentine president was the last to show some support in a recent interview.

In an interview with the local Caja Negra medium, Alberto Fernandez touched on the topic of digitization and how the country approaches it. Specifically, he was asked whether Argentina would be involved in launching the central bank’s own digital currency or perhaps even accepting BTC as legal tender:

“I don’t want to go too far,” but there’s no reason to say ‘no.’ Maybe it’s a good path we should take. “

He added that the most significant advantage of BTC’s journey is that “the inflationary effect is largely nullified” by the maximum supply of this asset, which is 21 million coins that ever existed.
