From the valuation of BTC may not immediately increase after halving to the warning of the fake application of ‘Ledger Live’ on Chrome Web Store. Here are some highlights from the crypto market.
In interview Recently, Bitmain co-founder Jihan Wu discussed some of his predictions regarding the future of Bitcoin and the mining industry, halving events, and cryptocurrencies. Despite the outbreak of the corona virus and its impact on the global economy, Wu remains optimistic and believes that the central bank's loose monetary policy around the world will boost the value of public financial technology.
Co-founder of Bitmain, believes that cryptocurrencies show a lot of promise amid the current economic storm. Jihan Wu said he felt very positive about the future of digital currencies like Bitcoin. Wu explained that recent bailouts and "pumping money" planners to stimulate the economy could make digital currencies more valuable. However, Wu noted that, for the time being, BTC growth will be slower.
“As BTC market capitalization grows, its volatility decreases and is more stable. That means we may not see a surge in its price. I think the strong rally this time may not come right after the halving takes place but will probably happen after some time. ”
Bitcoin is still correlated with the stock market in the context of the ongoing financial crisis
In the current financial crisis, Bitcoin has yet to prove itself to be a safe haven asset. In fact, research of The Block shows that Bitcoin has formed a relative correlation with the stock market.

The contract between the negative correlation in January and the positive in March are statistically significant, showing an interesting development.
The researchers said the correlation may disappear as quickly as it appears. However, there is no sign that it will happen
