Bitcoin Price Prediction

The BTC/USD closed at $58,790.0 after hitting a high of $60,047.0 and a low of $58,624.0. BTC/USD dropped on Sunday after rising for two consecutive sessions amid the latest warning from Hilary Clinton. According to American politician and former Democratic presidential candidate Hilary Clinton, the rise of bitcoin and alternative cryptocurrencies could have a negative impact on the global economy. She was unhappy with the global financial network's implementation of cryptocurrencies and said that today's world was facing new challenges like disinformation, artificial intelligence, and cryptocurrencies.

Clinton said that digital assets were grabbing the public's attention due to their interesting and exotic nature. However, she warned that digital assets present a threat to the US dollar and that adopting cryptocurrencies can destabilise whole nations. Clinton also warned about Russian President Vladimir Putin and said that he has a large mercenary force operating everywhere from Syria to the Central African Republic. She said that Putin has an extensive stable of hackers who deal in disinformation and cyber warfare. She said that all eyes were on China, but the US government should not forget Russia. These comments from the first lady of the United States from 1993–2001 as the wife of President Bill Clinton, added a negative impression on the whole cryptocurrency market, which added to the loss in BTC/USD.

On the other hand, El Salvador's President, Nayib Bukele, announced the launch of Bitcoin City, which will be funded initially by $1 billion in bitcoin bonds. The initiative was sought to celebrate Bitcoin's mainstream adoption in the country and increase citizen participation. The development of Bitcoin City will see the proactive involvement of prominent crypto companies, including cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex and Adam Back's Blockstream. The exchange Bitfinex will support El Salvador's Bitcoin City initiative by launching a securities platform to hold the bitcoin bonds. This news caused a further loss in BTC/USD over the weekend.

Furthermore, the US dollar's strength was also the reason behind the declining prices of the BTC/USD over the weekend. On Friday, the greenback was high against its rival currencies, hovering around the 96.24 level, which ultimately added negative pressure on the leading cryptocurrency as both share a negative correlation. The bullish comments from Fed officials, who stated that faster tapering could lead to a faster than expected interest rate hike, added strength to the US dollar on Friday.
