Let’s dive into that below to see why the crypto token is doing so well today.

  • Starting off, El Salvador is moving forward with its plans to embrace the crypto.
  • The country is seeking natural ways to mine Bitcoin and that includes harvesting the power of volcanoes.
  • News out of the country today claims this is already underway with some mining from volcano power being successful.
  • It states that .00599179 BTC was mined using that power, which comes to $269.
  • Nayib Bukele, President of El Salvador, says more tests and installations are planned to mine more of the crypto in this way.
  • Another bit of Bitcoin news that could be boosting the crypto today comes from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.
  • Yesterday he said that the central bank has no intentions to ban cryptocurrencies.
  • It’s also possible that Bitcoin was simply poised for an increase.
  • The crypto had been holding its price before today’s movement.
  • That’s a sign that a rally could come with a catalyst.
  • The El Salvador and Powell news above could have kicked that off.
  • It’s also worth noting that crypto typically does well in Q4 and we just hit that with the start of October today.
  • That could be another reason BTC is on the rise today.

BTC was up 10.1% over a 24-hour period as of Friday morning.
