Bitcoin Has Started To Climb Back Up In The Last Couple Days. Perhaps Due To A Recent AWS Job Posting.

 The price of Bitcoin, the established private digital currency, has risen by 290% in the past six months, but that is nothing compared to other market participants.


The price of bitcoin fell below $30,000 on Tuesday for the first time in more than a month, but rose again to $32,000 by Thursday afternoon. Bitcoin climbed back up this week after losing ground to Ethereum, Binance (BNB), Cardano, Ripple (XRP) and Dogecoin, which made up some of the lost ground. Ether, the second largest cryptocurrency by market value, has risen by about 710% in the past six months.


On Twitter, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, left, Square CEO Jack Dorsey and ARK Invest CEO Cathie Wood spoke at the B Word Conference on Wednesday, July 21. Musk and Dorsey talked about the institutional adoption of Bitcoin. Fresh comments from Tesla boss Elon Musk coincided with a brief rise in the value of Bitcoin and Ethereum. Both Bitcoin and Ethereum posted brief price increases after Musk, Dorsey and Wood discussed a broader institutional rollout of the cryptocurrency.


The Verified team spoke to cryptocurrency experts about the recent drop in the price of Bitcoin which has fallen from a high of more than $60,000 per coin to a low of $30,000. At the same time, according to CoinDesk, the price of Ethereum has climbed from a low of $1,733 to its highest level since 2012, a normal swing that mimics bitcoin's fluctuations. Experts said the volatility of the cryptocurrency, particularly Bitcoin, came into full force as market sentiment shifted following news of China's increased regulation and tweets from influential technology leaders.

The price of bitcoin rose above $40,000 on Monday for the first time in more than a month after an Amazon job advert suggested the tech giant was considering introducing cryptocurrencies.

The price of bitcoin last rose 17 per cent to $40,500 per coin on Monday afternoon, according to Coinbase data. The cryptocurrencies experienced a brutal sell-off in late June and July, with bitcoin prices falling as low as $29,300 as investors worried about a Chinese government crackdown on crypto-mining. Despite Monday's impressive performance, bitcoin is still 38 per cent below its all-time high of $65,000 a coin in April.


There is a lot of speculation that the big rise in Bitcoins is due to a pump-and-dump system. One theory is that the US Department of Justice is investigating whether digital coins which are tied to the US dollar lead to a less volatile cryptocurrency to manipulate the bitcoin market and cause a big price spike.


Like physical commodities, technological changes can affect cryptocurrency prices. In July and August 2017, the price of Bitcoin was affected by a controversy that altered the underlying technology to improve transaction times. After the change was completed, bitcoin prices skyrocketed, rising from around $2,700 to a record high of more than $4,000 in just two weeks.


Coinbase began trading at 381 a share on Wednesday, up 5.2 percent from the's $22-priority price' set Tuesday by the Nasdaq. Coinbase fluctuated between a low of $310 and a high of $429 during a volatile trading day that reflected the volatility of the cryptocurrency price. Coinbase ended the day at $328.28, valuing the company at $8.57 billion, including its outstanding shares, more than ten times its last valuation as a private company.


Coinbase's share price has fueled the cryptocurrency boom this year, as investors pumped money into assets, pushing their prices to new highs. Established in 2012 in San Francisco, the company allows people and businesses to buy and sell various digital currencies including Bitcoin, the most popular currency and ether. Earlier this week, Bitcoin hit a record high of $64,000 amid excitement over the company's listing and its value since the start of the year.


The B-Word conference in recent weeks also pushed up the price of bitcoin. At the event, Musk said that will likely start accepting bitcoin, and that more renewables will be used to mine it.


Bitcoin surged above $40,000 for the first time since June, with a spate of short selling intensifying the rally and sparking speculation about Amazon's involvement in the cryptoindustry. "We are inspired by the innovation in cryptocurrency and are exploring what these innovations could look like at Amazon," the company said in a statement.


In a job ad, Amazon is reportedly seeking executives to develop the company's digital currency and blockchain strategy, raising questions among analysts about whether that could lead to the company accepting bitcoin as a payment method. A report released by Cityam on Monday morning quoted Amazon insiders as saying the company plans to accept bitcoin and other key cryptocurrencies as means of payment, which would be a key part of its growth plans through the end of 2021. The report followed a job advertisement at Cityam for a digital currency / blockchain product to help develop a roadmap for cryptocurrencies / blockchains as part of the Amazon Payment Acceptance Experience team.


CityAM sources added that the plan is to make cryptocurrencies an important part of Amazon’s future growth, a business plan spearheaded by the former CEO and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. The Amazon insider added that the company not only wants to establish a fast way to pay with cryptocurrencies, but also wants to launch its own cryptocurrency, with the company set to unveil the product by the end of 2022. The report sent the value of bitcoin into a new phase of growth not seen since its boom in May this year, but Amazon said the insider's claims were untrue.
