The growth in crypto market could be attributed to the exposure which Bitcoin and the whole crypto market/industry has received in via the comments of top US officials including the President of the United States and the Libra hearing which held in DC.
As the Libra representative appeared before the US Senators, several interesting issues were brought up which has exposed millions of Americans and the global community to what Bitcoin and cryptocurrency is. Going forward, crypto will enjoy mass exposure as it gets into daily discussions and politics.
As Libra and crypto has become a hot topic in the US, it could be expected that the forth coming US elections will be a platform to discuss Crypto. Something which Crypto advocate, cybersecurity expert and Presidential aspirant John McAfee has already informed us.
