Is it called Ripple, XRP, or dogshit? Who knows, who cares. It’s worth more than zero so it’s time to trade the USD pair on BitMEX. Boo-Yaka-sha! https://t.co/pa3T5vd5kl— Arthur Hayes (@CryptoHayes) February 4, 2020

China’s central bank will pump billions of yuan into the economy
The Chinese central bank again announced that it will deliver 1.2 trillion yuan ($ 174 billion) to the market on February 3 to stabilize economic pressure. This year’s injection will be 900 billion yuan higher than in 2019, a clear indication of the weakening fiat currencies around the world. According to the demand and supply rule, as soon as supply exceeds demand, the price drops. This will result in more people seeking safe haven to secure their future investments, and cryptocurrencies could be one option.
