Market Update

Bitcoin has been making waves lately. A cursory search on Google Trends for “price of bitcoin” shows increasing interest in the last 90 days:

As interest in bitcoin rises, so does the price. Many industry insiders point to both China and the upcoming halving in supply of bitcoins as the sources driving the recent increase in the bitcoin price to a level not seen in the past 20 months.

Experts believe that the devaluation of the Yuan is causing the Chinese to buy bitcoins, which in turn drives the price. Other insiders point to the upcoming “halving” event where the supply of new bitcoins will drop by half as the reason for the increase. In other words, as per the bitcoin protocol, bitcoin miners will only receive 12.5 BTC vs the current 25 BTC as a reward for finding new blocks. The “halving” is expected to occur in early July.  

Increased interest in the bitcoin price has subsequently driven interest in the underlying technology, the blockchain. Banks continue to explore ways in which the blockchain technology can bring efficiencies and cost savings to their operations.

Blue chip companies such as IBM and Microsoft seem to launch new blockchain projects almost weekly; and as expected, startups continue to dream up new ways to apply blockchain technology to industries ripe for disruption, including insurance and healthcare.
