    Abstract:Prices have continued to rally since July 21 with Sunday's current price rise representing the largest single daily gain in over six weeks.

      Bitcoin briefly traded above $39,000 for the first time since June 16 and is currently trading its sixth consecutive day in the green.

      PRICES have continued to rally since July 21 with Sunday‘s current price rise representing the largest single daily gain in over six weeks. The world’s oldest CRYPTO is changing hands for around $38,250, having cooled slightly after hitting a monthly high of around $39,850.

      “Weve also been seeing a significant increase in demand for USDC (-0.14%) from institutional borrowers and the sentiment seems to be bullish following the news of Amazon participating in bitcoin (BTC, +13.64%),” Kim added.

      An unconfirmed single-source story in City A.M. has reported retail giant Amazon is looking to accept bitcoin payments by years end and is looking at minting its own token by 2022. The retail giant is also looking for a Digital Currency and Blockchain Product Lead, CoinDesk previously reported.

      CoinDesk attempted to contact Amazon but did not receive a reply by press time.

    Bitcoin Global Legalization: A survey of countries that accept and reject Bitcoin.

    Since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009 by the unknown founder popularly known as Satoshi Nakamoto, the march for its legalization as well as other cryptocurrencies had continued till this point. While some countries had officially legalized Bitcoin and accepts it as a legal tender, others rather reject and ban it. The rest tend to maintain a neutral approach of tolerating it without either banning nor legalizing it. The major reason for this has been that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lacks regulation and centralization and hence, beyond the control of the government. However, there is a general vision that given the popularity of Bitcoin itself and other cryptocurrencies, more countries will in no distant time give an official approval and legalization of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.
