Bitcoin Is Back Above $51k and Ether $4,100 as The Cryptocurrency Market Goes Green


To mark the beginning of the last week of 2021, the crypto market is enjoying the greens.

After the quiet weekend, on Monday, the total crypto market capitalization has risen 2.8% to $2.55 trillion.

Amidst these greens, Bitcoin has moved back up above $50k to about $51,480. But the leading cryptocurrency is still down almost 26% from its all-time high of $69,000 in early November.

As for Ether, it is hovering around $4,100 while ETH/BTC is just under 0.08, down from a multi-year high of 0.0885 seen earlier this month and before that in late February 2018. ETH -4.04% Ethereum / USD ETHUSD $ 1,094.50

Meanwhile, in the past week, decentralized finance (DeFi) tokens were pumping with Near, Fantom, Aave, Kadena, Sushi, and Cosmos, leading with 40% to 70% gains.

This week, some volatility could be expected as major cryptocurrency exchanges, including Binance, Huobi, and MEXC, close China’s fiat-to-crypto channels on Dec. 21, as communicated by them previously.

Bitcoin Pumps Prices

A Thai technology company also has its share more than tripled since it unveiled its expansion into Bitcoin mining in late July. Jasmine Technology Solution stock soared by almost 7,000% YTD.

“The strong response from investors has exceeded our expectations,” Chairman Soraj Asavaprapha said in an interview.

“There’s bullish optimism toward our new direction even though this is just the beginning.”

So far, the company has generated only 8 BTC from its 325 mining machines since operations started. Soraj expects next year to be even more active as it plans to invest about 3.3 billion baht ($98.3 million) in as many as 7,000 new devices.

The mining businesses will be profitable as long as bitcoin’s price holds above $30,000, said Soraj, adding revenue from Bitcoin mining will account for 80% of their total turnover by late next year.

Gifting Bitcoin

NFL quarterback Mac Jones has also announced that he gifted Bitcoin to 12 of his teammates as a Christmas present.

These teammates include Ted Karras, David Andrews, Trent Brown, Yodny Cajuste, Yasir Durant, James Ferentz, Shaq Mason, Mike Onwenu, Alex Redmond, Justin Herron, Will Sherman, and Isaiah Wynn have become Bitcoiners for the first time.

Jones, who plays for the New England Patriots in the National Football League, said that he has been researching the cryptocurrency for some time now and reached out to fellow Alabama Alumni and Bitcoin Magazine CEO David Bailey.

“I’ve been studying Bitcoin for a while now. This year I just knew I had to give some Bitcoin to my teammates.”

For this, Jones used Bitcoin service provider Swan private, whose CEO said in a statement that the company’s mission is to “create 10 million new Bitcoiners.”
