Bitcoin zooms by 13%

Bitcoin over the past half an hour has gone bonkers and has risen by $1000 and now trading at $8000 (at press time), just half an hour ago, Bitcoin was trading at $6900 with almost no hope in sight.

At 10:35 UTC, Bitcoin was trading at $6855 and now shoots up by 13%. Although there has been a slight pullback, the momentum seems to be back in the game, with all altcoins gaining a few percents as well.

Mandan Moore a crypto investor says,



“Everybody wanted a reminder of what Bitcoin can do and now here it is. Boom mofos!”

A falling wedge / a descending triangle had chart analysts predicting Bitcoin to drop or gain by $1000 in the next couple of days. The current gain indicates a possible bull run for other altcoins as well.

Paul Jerez, a financial advisor says,

“This small stint of rising to $8000, even if it comes back to trade at $7500 proves what Bitcoin is capable and a reminder to the community of why they have invested. HODL is key, the markets are bouncing back.”

Bitcoin [BTC], the largest cryptocurrency in the world has gained a lot of mainstream media attention over the years. However, most media houses have often failed to deliver the message to the masses, with the main reason being lack of research and knowledge of the subject. The cryptocurrency was thrown back into the spotlight after CBS released a teaser to their latest “60 Minutes” episode, unveiling a few influencers of the industry, speaking about their experience.

The episode, which released on 19 May 2019, immediately grabbed the attention of the cryptocurrency space, with a majority wondering whether the media channel would nail it or fail it. Interestingly, there was a poll conducted on Bitcoin Talk, where the question was ‘CBS 60 Minutes 5/19/19 on Bitcoin. Will it cause FOMO or FUD?’

60 Minutes, broadcast on the CBS Network is one of the oldest and most-watched American television programs, with the focus being “the real story on America’s most prevalent issues”. According to CBS, 60 Minutes has an average of 11.4 million viewers and about a million people who listen to its radio broadcast and podcast.

The show titled ‘Bitcoin’s Wild Ride’ aired hours ago, and covered the story of Charlie Shrem, the founder of BitInstant, Laszlo Hanyecz, the famous pizza guy who is recognized as the first person to make a real-world transaction with Bitcoin, and Marco Streng, the CEO of Genesis Mining. The segment also had Neha Narula, the Director of Digital Currency Initiative at MIT Media Lab, answering questions pertaining to the coin, and Lael Brainard, a member of the US Federal Reserve, speaking about why not Bitcoin.

The show was briefly explained by a Redditor, EternitySphere,

Unlike other mainstream Bitcoin segments, this segment was well-received by the Bitcoin community after a majority agreed that it did not spread FUD and that it was an unbiased episode, contrary to expectations. However, there were few concerns pertaining to a lack of content, with some believing that it failed to explain key information; which includes how it derives it value, albeit there was no FUD.



Franky1 commented on Bitcoin Talk,

“[…] next was the whole describing mining segment involving genesis mining.(facepalm) ASIC’s do not store records(asics have no hard drive).. so saying the mining done by genesis is the location where records are kept can be misguiding people to think genesis mining are ‘the bank’ and user software just ‘watches the numbers and letters'[…]”

Rdbase also remarked on the Bitcoin forum,

“The whole segment was about charlie shrem known as bitcoin moses and his fall into bad luck with taking a payment which was used to buy illegal things on the dark web. It did have some good points but overall it was just directed towards the public view about it. As a skeptical thing to use and banks were safer with its fiat financial system”
