Excepting this week’s temporary decline, the crypto market has been moving upwards since the day Bitcoin’s price jumped $1,000 in 30 minutes on April 12. During this period, the markets have been propelled by a number of positive news, particularly Goldman Sachs executives resigning for positions at crypto projects, such as the crypto wallet Blockchain.com and the crypto merchant bank Galaxy Digital.
Earlier today, Gil Beyda, the managing director of the venture capital arm of Comcast, expressed a bullish view on Bitcoin and real world applications of Blockchain technology.
On Monday, Goldman Sachs hired cryptocurrency trader Justing Schmidt as vice president of digital asset markets of its securities division, “in response to client interest in various digital products.”
