A strong ripple effect seems to be coming to the market after the Chinese president pronounced the words ‘’blockchain’’ and ‘’breakthrough’’ and the bitcoin price started to pump. As we can see in the latest news on altcoin, the Primitive founding partner Dovey Wan, noted some additional effects caused by the comments.
The fact that Xi’s proclamation was only about blockchain and not bitcoin, wasn’t enough to scare the investors. His message was likely misrepresented since the actions on the market shows us a different picture. The investors likely heard ‘’bitcoin’’ rather than blockchain and started buying at a speedy rate. Bitcoin saw a price increase in more than 13 percent in just ten minutes but the rally wasn’t done until it reached an increase of over 40 percent, posting Bitcoin’s fourth-best day ever.
The noted Chinese crypto commentator Dovey Wan, explained on Twitter only twelve hours after the ‘’Xi pump’’ to point out some immediate blockchain-based developments in the country. At first, blockchain Blockchain was headlined on People’s daily print version today and Top universities in china started blockchain courses offering overnight.
Now if the USA President Trump or the Russian president Putin were to make a big declaration about blockchain technology being the future of innovation, we would rightly expect the newspapers to report it. However, analysts believe that the impact wouldn’t have been so great as this one.
Wan believes this is just the beginning and that more blockchain-related initiatives are imminent. Also, she expects large scale projects from more regional authorities to be announced in the future. He stated that we should expect to see a massive blockchain initiative from local municipalities soon. Wan signed out saying that the Ripple effect is strong but it seems like she was not referring to the foundation that controls XRP.
Bitcoin surged more than $1000 in less than an hour charting a massive green candle. As can be seen all over the charts, Bitcoin was trading at around $7,400 earlier and it marked a massive spike to about $8,400. The market capitalization is close to $150 billion. The price is still consolidating so we better pay close attention.
