Dash has made an announcement about forming a tie-up with Israeli payment provider Simplex that makes it possible to purchase the O.G. cryptocurrency with the help of credit cards. 

According to Dash Core Group Ryan Taylor, this is "an exciting opportunity" for the cryptocurrency given that it can now be offered to more websites. 

Back in October, Tron (TRX) also became available for purchase via Simplex.

Simplex has an extensive list of partners, which includes cryptocurrency behemoth Binance. Back in January 2019, the Malta-based exchange enabled credit and debit card payments for four cryptocurrencies

Users who buy crypto with the help of Simplex can take advantage of its proprietary fraud protection mechanism and chargeback coverage.  

The obvious downside is the draconian five percent fee that might not be a reasonable tradeoff for some potential customers.

The Bitcoin bulls have managed to score their first major victory since the 38 price collapse on March 12. On Apr. 2, the price of the leading cryptocurrency jumped to an intraday high of $7,273 at 17:03 UTC. 

As a result, more than $61 mln worth of BTC shorts has been wiped out on the BitMEX derivatives exchange, according to data provided by Datamish.

A minor victory    

According to the BitMEX liquidation bot, some deep-pocketed bears recorded humongous losses with one unfortunate trader squandering at least $100,000 (implying that he used the maximum 100x leverage). 

Still, the $61 mln figure cannot hold a candle to the bull massacre that happened on 'Black Thursday' when an eye-popping $700 mln of leveraged BitMEX positions that were liquidated in one day

The bulls staged a significantly more impressive comeback exactly one year ago when $500 mln worth of shorts were wiped out after a surprising 20 percent pump.

A local top?

After its 14 percent rally, Bitcoin has evaporated almost all of its recent gains in tandem with other assets. This shows that Bitcoin is still on very shaky ground, currently trading at $6,764.

However, the Dow is currently in the green, which means that BTC no longer moves in lockstep with U.S. equities.
