🗓 Weekly Digest: Trump's and FIFA's NFT Collections, Digital ID on Blockchain in China, and More


✅ Donald Trump Launches Mugshot Edition NFT Collection

✅ Blockstream CEO Predicts Bitcoin Price Surge to $100,000 in 2024

According to Adam Back, Bitcoin is lagging behind the values it exhibited before previous halvings. The expert identified three main factors influencing this: Covid-19, quantitative easing policies in the U.S. and Europe, and local conflicts.

These factors have impacted not only the market but also investor behavior, according to Back. The need for careful risk management led many asset managers to sell more liquid positions. The recent rally in the Bitcoin market is seen as the first sign that the influence of these macroeconomic events is diminishing. Consequently, the expert believes that the asset will reach a new all-time high in 2024.
