  • The new highs in the bitcoin price are positive, and Bitfinex CTO Paolo Ardoino is optimistic about the long-term outlook for BTC. Bitcoin strengthened its bullish momentum on relatively light trading volume. It seems that investors are staying on the sidelines and waiting for a clear direction. Meanwhile, it’s important to note that bitcoin won’t just become an asset for large institutions and corporations, Ardoino said in an investment note to the Bitcoin.com news feed.
  • Under the hood of the bitcoin ecosystem, work is hard, Ardoino added. Layers are forming that could well determine how multiple payments are made by the end of this decade. Bitcoin is the fundamental base layer of this ecosystem that will eventually displace the entire payment and credit card industry.
  • At the time of writing, Ethereum (ETH) is up over 6% at $1,883, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is up 5.47% at $565, and the biggest winner in the top 10 is Cardano (ADA), up over 7% year-to-date and trading at $1.15 per unit.
