After plunging for consecutive two sessions, the Bitcoin prices recovered on Thursday as they soared upward, reversing it's momentum. Most of the bullish trend was triggered by Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

As per Elon Musk, bitcoin is turning towards renewable energy, and several of the heavy-duty coal factories employed in China have been closed. Musk continued that he needed to verify that the usage of renewable energy was at or over 50% for bitcoin mining.
As per the latest figures from Cambridge University, many miners have been directed to the United States., which has become the second-biggest target for the world's bitcoin miners. Musk stated that long-term renewable energy would be the most affordable energy; however, it could not be accomplished overnight. He further added that as long as there is determined solid effort from the mining industry to move towards renewables, Tesla would promote the BTC. These remarks from Elon Musk appended in the worth of BTC/USD, and the cryptocurrency rose around 8% in value.
The U.S. Dollar Index that estimates the greenback worth versus the basket of six major currencies slipped and touched 92.76 level, appending additional gains in Ethereum prices. Both of these currencies share a negative correlation. The bearishness in the greenback could be credited to the sunk risk-off market bias and eased down concerns of coronavirus radiated across the market.
