It is noteworthy that a unit of bitcoin has not reached US$ 50 since September 7, when the value of the cryptocurrency was boosted by the legalization of the cryptoactive in El Salvador — a country that managed to mine bitcoin harnessing the energy of a volcano.
One of the factors that moved the cryptoactives market was the fact that the United States decided that bitcoin will not be banned in the country, which reassured investors. That confidence has been shaken recently in China, as the country's government decided to adopt a new wavethat of repression against cryptocurrencies.
