Modest Increase in Crypto Value
Bitcoin and Ethereum both saw a modest rise in value on Sunday, with BTC surpassing $20,000 and ETH reaching the $1,400 mark. The decline of the US dollar, which resulted from February’s labor statistics showing slower wage growth, may be responsible for this ongoing modest increase in crypto value.
Ordinal’s Impact on Bitcoin Network
The adoption of Ordinal, a Layer 2 solution, is expanding the use cases of the Bitcoin network beyond just BTC transactions. While there have been differing opinions on using Ordinal in the Bitcoin community, its rising popularity and potential impact on the Bitcoin network could change the game for BTC miners. Ordinal’s ability to enable fast and inexpensive transactions could lead to increased adoption of Bitcoin and potentially reduce the load on the network. This could ultimately result in greater efficiency and profitability for BTC miners. This has been identified as one of the key factors that could help BTC regain its strength and increase in price.
Weak Dollar Boosts Crypto Market
The global cryptocurrency market has seen significant losses over the past week, with both Bitcoin and Ethereum losing almost 11% of their value. However, as soon as US dollar weakened due to labor data released for February indicating slower wage growth – thus reducing inflationary pressures – crypto began to recover some of its losses. This suggests that weaker US dollar has been driving force behind recent surge crypto market experienced recently.
