Bitcoin Ends The Week Touching $7700, Almost Fully Recovered From The COVID19 Crash: The Weekly Market Update

It’s safe to say that the last seven days were packed with action on all fronts. Bitcoin started the week trading at around $7,100 but fell to a low of around $6,800. The bears were for not, however, as yesterday BTC surged to a high of $7,780 in a few consecutive green candles. 

Naturally, the entire market followed with most of the large-cap cryptocurrencies charting serious weekly increases. Tezos is up more than 25% over the past four days while others like Ethereum, Chainlink, and Stellar follow suit. With this, the cryptocurrency market managed to recover almost entirely from the vicious crash on March 12th. 

On another note, oil experienced its worst crash in history. The WTI crude oil future contract which expires in May traded in the negative for the first time ever. The June contract also crashed substantially, sending many into disbelief. 

Meanwhile, developments in the cryptocurrency field continue as China looks almost ready with its digital currencies. Reports have it that the country is already piloting the project with major companies such as McDonald’s and Starbucks trialing it at the forefront. 

The COVID-19 crisis continues and many countries are still in full or partial lockdowns. Even though many governments begin talking about loosening the measures, the virus doesn’t appear to be slowing its spread as the total number of infected people grows to over 2.5 million worldwide.
