    Bitcoin (BTC) the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization retested 5-digit price region a few hours ago. This price upsurge has been attributed to the recent development initiated by the Fed Chairman Jerome Powell.

    Since the comment was published, virtually all the cryptocurrencies in the market, including Bitcoin (BTC) have experienced positive price trend.

    Recap of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s Statement about Cryptocurrency

    Obviously, these comments are contrary to President Donald Trump’s hostility towards anonymous cryptocurrency transactions. Howbeit, Powell’s comments indicate that policy shake-up regarding cryptocurrency in the United States is imminent.

    Another statement in favor of digitalizing the US Dollar is also attributed to the Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. While speaking with the Committee on Financial Services, he said “we are working hard on it”.

    Bitcoin (BTC) has perfectly led the market price uptrend as expected. Its sovereignty over other cryptocurrencies has most times forced them to tend to its price trend.
