Bitcoin steigen nach Bewilligung von börsegehandelten Fonds (ETF)

By Ninian Carter

February 14, 2024 - Bitcoin hat wieder einen Wert von rund $50,000 nach zwei Jahren mit einer Reihe von Skandalen und Versagen, die letztendlich zum Kollaps der FTX Börse führten, und der Krypto-Poster-Boy Sam Bankman-Fried verhaftet wurde. Anklage und Schuldspruch lauteten auf Betrug.

The value of Bitcoin has surged to its highest level in over two years. At the time of writing on February 14, 2024, it is worth $51,698 – up from a plunge of 64% to $16,464 in November 2022.

A series of scandals led to a wave of failures that wiped out a hedge fund and several crypto exchanges, including FTX and the conviction of its founder and crypto poster boy Sam Bankman-Fried on charges of fraud. He is expected to be sentenced in March.

Crypto prices are rising as analysts see fewer looming risks to the industry, and due to the recent U.S. approval of exchange-traded funds (ETF) that invest directly in Bitcoin – attracting a new wave of investors who don’t need to buy and safely store Bitcoin themselves or on an exchange.
