UK Newspaper The Independent Covers Bitcoins Mid Pandemic Bull Run

Cryptocurrency has hit the headlines in the U.K., with The Independent reporting on Bitcoin’s recent yearly highs above $12,000.

An Aug. 18 report shows the major news publication, which has more than 24 million subscribers, covering the mid-pandemic bull run in the cryptocurrency markets.

“The latest gains mean the price of Bitcoin has nearly trebled since March, despite a global economic slowdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic,” the article stated.

“Other cryptocurrencies have mirrored Bitcoin’s fortunes, with Ether (Ethereum) rising from just above $100 in March to today’s price of $430.”

The Independent compared Bitcoin with gold as safe haven assets to which investors turn in “times of economic uncertainty.” The news outlet also cited business intelligence firm MicroStrategy purchasing $250 million in BTC to use as its primary reserve asset.

Crypto going mainstream

Bitcoin’s price has grown substantially in 2020 as central banks have pushed many unconventional measures to lessen the economic impact of the pandemic, prompting some companies and figures to reconsider crypto as a legitimate store of value.

In the U.K., Mike Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital printed a full-page cryptocurrency ad in international business newspaper Financial Times on Aug. 14, telling readers to “invest in Bitcoin” during these “uncertain times.” Richard Heart’s controversial HEX token also has ads plastered across London public transportation, in newspapers, and during soccer games.

Grayscale Investments released a 30-second spot on business and finance cable TV channels starting on Aug. 10, to which many viewers responded negatively on social media.
