The ups and downs of Bitcoin
From the third Halving of Bitcoin happened a few weeks ago, the eyes of all the users in the crypto world have been fixed on the price of the criptomoneda. Much more than is already usual in a market, that has been accustomed to revolve around Bitcoin for more than a decade.

By increasing the scarcity of the criptoactivo, which, with a steady demand, should drive the price of the virtual currency.
Basically this had been the development followed by Bitcoin during the two Halving previous. Thanks to which, in the year 2017, Bitcoin managed to almost 20,000 us dollars per BTC for the first and only time in its history. Staying during the last year and a half around $ 10,000, although without managing to overcome this barrier for a long time.

Thus, investors who participate in CME would be trading with a much higher price to the current trading spot Bitcoin. A trend that also corresponds with the steady increase in the purchases of Bitcoin made by Grayscale.
Grayscale is an investment fund, which allows large institutional investors in the acquisition of financial products is equivalent to the possession of Bitcoin. But without taking the hassle of purchasing and storing the criptomoneda, a service that offers Grayscale and that has led him to have a rate of purchase frenzy.
