Listen to the May 24 Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show

On this edition of the Crypto.IQ Daily Radio Show, we do a deep dive market analysis. Bitcoin (BTC) has surged from $7,500 to $8,100 since yesterday morning, and the rest of the crypto market is well into the green. The renewed bullishness in the crypto market is likely related to the stock market doing poorly due to the escalating trade war between China and the United States. Binance Coin (BNB) is at a new all-time high near $34 on news that Binance margin trading is coming soon. AT&T has begun accepting Bitcoin (BTC) via BitPay, which is a major win for cryptocurrency adoption. Hear about how Bulgaria seized 200,000 Bitcoins (BTC) in a darknet raid and sold them near the peak of the last bull run. We discuss how Localbitcoins has banned Iranian users as tensions escalate between the United States and Iran. Learn about how Facebook will be launching GlobalCoin in early 2020. Facebook appears to be aiming to compete with PayPal via a payment network based around GlobalCoin.
