Sentiment in Bitcoin and Crypto Market is Changing
Despite the stability in the price of bitcoin in the past several months, the trading activity in the cryptocurrency market has noticeably increased as seen in the volume of major crypto assets.
The cryptocurrency industry has continued to see companies move forward with the expansion of services and products, aggressively growing amidst a 15-month bear market.
On Tuesday, for instance, Switzerland’s largest electronics retailer Digitec integrated bitcoin and crypto payments, a move that may fuel merchant adoption of cryptocurrencies in the region.
