Payne: Millennials love Bitcoin, Wall Street will too
Bitcoin (BTC) grew by more than 50% this year, so the mainstream media is also changing its view. Charles Payne has recently said that even large Wall Street investors, not just technologically savvy millenniums, will end up loving cryptocurrencies.

Transaction fees for BTC transfer are the same, fees for VISA payments increase
The cost of online transactions for Visa cards has increased by the largest percentage in more than ten years, while the cost of BTC transactions has remained relatively stable. Visa’s increased fees are likely to result in higher consumer payments. All transactions require a particular medium, except for simple peer-to-peer cash payments.
Over the past decade, these fees from Visa have remained stable at around $ 1.90. The new rates are $ 1.99. Although this increase does not seem extreme for any single transaction, the price for online shoppers is starting to rise. Each transaction using Visa cards is charged $ 0.10 more, and hundreds of online transactions add up.

Coinbase Pro triggers the lever trading feature
Coinbase Pro, a US stock exchange belonging to Coinbase, has begun to promote leveraged trading. Its select customers can now use a 3X trading margin. The feature has several regional and customer status restrictions.
Leverage on Coinbase Pro can be used by residents of 23 selected states. The 3-fold margin is significantly lower compared to the 100-fold leverage offered by BitMex, or with the 50-fold leverage on the Binance. “We will monitor its use and continually evaluate this function,” Coinbase spokesman said.
Leveraged trading is limited not only by region, but also by its trader activity on the platform. In other words, payments will be made only to those customers who demonstrate regular platform activity. This will give them the skills to trade with margin.
