Bitcoin and Polygon [Matic] Price analysis

Bitcoin price analysis

Bitcoin price [-.91%] continues to chop despite bullish news across the market over the past week.

Arguably the most bullish story of the week came over last weekend at the much anticipated Bitcoin Miami Conference 2021. Over video presentation at the conference El Salvador’s President announced his initiative of a bill to legalize bitcoin as legal tender in the country.

Long term bitcoin holders don’t need another bullish signal of bitcoin’s potential longevity but newcomers may. A prominent signal to ‘new money’ investors that crypto is here to stay may’ve come in the purchase of rights to what’s formerly American Airlines Arena in Miami. The arena’s new name is FTX Arena – FTX is one of the world’s most popular cryptocurrency exchanges.

FTX has the rights to the name of the arena for the next 19 years.

There’s yet to be a markup on bitcoin price as a result of this news however and bitcoin’s exchange trade volume is near 2021 lows.
