Cryptocurrencies increase their importance as means of payment
The positive evolution of Bitcoin is supported by great advances for the world of crypto assets. PayPal has made its cryptocurrency service available to its British customers with which they can buy, hold or sell their digital currencies as of this week after the purchase of AfterPay, a service similar to that offered by the American company, by Square. It is also favored by the block growth of the rest of cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, or Cardano that have supported Bitcoin throughout this month of August.
Some countries are already accepting cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. The example is El Salvador, which, after announcing the legality of Bitcoin at the end of July, last week the Central Reserve Bank (BCR) of the country published a document with the technical standards to facilitate the application of the Bitcoin Law in financial institutions interested in providing the services of convertibility of the cryptocurrency to dollars, and vice versa. The president of this country, Nayib Bukele, assured last Sunday that the country will have a network of 200 ATMs in which Salvadorans who receive bitcoin will be able to withdraw dollars in cash as of September 7, when the law that gives legal circulation to the digital asset enters into force.
In this context, investors predict that Bitcoin will continue to increase in price and consolidate in an upward phase of the cycle at the end of this summer period with long-term prices between 250,000 and 500,000 dollars. However, other analysts take into account the “carbon footprint” that this crypto asset can leave. The expert Shawn Tully assured in Yahoo Finances that “if Bitcoin soars to the moon as expected, its notorious carbon footprint will expand with it. ”
Therefore, the environmental impact that the rise of this cryptocurrency may generate is also one of the factors to take into account to forecast what its evolution will be in the coming months and even in the coming years. The next few weeks will be key to determine if this bullish stage is maintained and consolidated or, on the contrary, it returns to the price that registered in the month of July. Only time will tell how much Bitcoin will go up.
