KONTAN.CO.ID – JAKARTA. The flood of global corporate sentiment to hunt crypto assets such as bitcoin, almost made the price of this cryptocurrency approach the level of US $ 50,000 per btc. Quoting the coinmarket page on Sunday (14/2) at 17.57 WIB, the price of bitcoin touched its highest level at US $ 49,259 per btc or around Rp. 689 million per btc (exchange rate of Rp. 14,000 per US dollar).
President Commissioner of HFX International Sutopo Widodo revealed that the increase in bitcoin prices in recent times was supported by various factors. One of them is the latest sentiment regarding Tesla’s investment last week.
Just a reminder, Tesla officially became the first automotive company to buy bitcoin. In fact, not only buying as an asset, the electric car company also accepts transactions in the form of Bitcoin.
“More and more global international companies such as the United States (US) are using and investing their portfolios into Bitcoin such as Tesla, Microstrategy, Square and others,” Sutopo told Kontan, Sunday (14/2)
Prior to Tesla, there was also Paypal, which also launched a feature for buying and selling crypto money, and making transactions using crypto since the end of last year. In addition, Sutopo also added that several global governments have started releasing their respective digital currencies, as China has recently done.
“As a result, the increasing number of countries that respond positively to the presence of crypto money such as the US, Germany, Japan and other countries, plus the bitcoin halving will be a positive sentiment for the crypto money,” he added.
