Bitcoin recupera após aprovação dos fundos transacionados em bolsa

By Ninian Carter

February 14, 2024 - A bitcoin vale cerca de $50.000 pela primeira vez em mais de dois anos, após uma série de escândalos e falhanços que levaram ao colapso da bolsa FTX e à prisão do ícone cripto Sam Bankman-Fried.

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.
