Bitcoin rallies following credit scare
On Monday, Bitcoin managed to surge steeply right after a credit scare on a key cryptocurrency exchange generated a rush for the number one crypto asset.
Having started the trading day around $6,200, on the Kraken exchange the currency pair BTC/USD climbed to an intraday maximum of $6,960.68. Meanwhile, according to CoinMarketCap data, on the third largest crypto exchange by volume, the Bitfinex exchange, Bitcoin got to an intraday peak of $7,788, making a premium of over 10%.
The jump in Bitcoin showed up at the expense of the stablecoin on the Bitfinex exchange, Tether that ended up with 88 cents. As a matter of fact, the stablecoin normally fluctuates close to $1 due to the fact it’s a US dollar backed crypto asset, which market participants utilize to trade between different crypto assets, in contrast with going in and out of fiat.
Folks were eager to shell out money just to get hold of the most popular crypto asset and get off USDT because fears circulated about credit risk, as some financial analysts pointed out.
Tether has been previously monitored whether it really holds enough American dollars in reserve to have its stablecoin backed.
In Monday trading, the number one crypto asset hit $6,527.24, adding nearly 4.4% on the Kraken exchange.Meanwhile, on Bitfinex, this digital coin showed $6,908.
