Bitcoin ETF’s off to a good start on Wall Street
On Tuesday 19 October, the first American exchange-traded fund (ETF) to invest in bitcoin futures made its debut on the stock market. After the good start of the ETF, there was a very good rally in Bitcoin. Now people will be able to easily invest in this cryptocurrency through ETFs and now the expectation of its coming into the mainstream has started increasing. This is changing the outlook of the people on the future outlook of this digital asset.

There has been a lot of volatility in the price of bitcoin
Bitcoin’s journey to $60,000 has been very ups and downs. In June 2021, the value of bitcoin went below $30,000 after criticism of the energy consumption of bitcoin mining and China’s ban on the cryptocurrency. However, gradually there was a recovery in the price of bitcoin.

This is a valid moment, it is no longer a question whether this asset will exit in future or not. I think this is really a good sign in the history of all digital currencies.
