Bitcoin Net Inflow Rises to $109 Million
Even though the Bitcoin price remains around the $9,000 level, there seems to be an increase in its adoption rate from across the globe from individuals to institutional investors. The high expectations of people coupled with the lasting economic crisis, made many see Bitcoin as a safe haven.
Example of such is the prominent US writer JK Rowling who recently enquired about Bitcoin. While she later accepted that she now feels fully educated about Bitcoin, she may have been thinking about investing in the asset as against the demeaning state of the world economy.
