Earlier on Monday, U.Today reported that the Bank of America shut down the bank account of a former PayPal executive and a major venture capitalist in Silicon Valley - Roelof Botha. The latter shared this news on Twitter. The BoA did not provide any solid reasons for this move.

Curiously enough, the Tron founder Justin Sun responded to his tweet, saying that the BoA had taken the same measures against him.

Justin Sun gets ‘fired as customer’ by BOA

Justin Sun writes on his Twitter page that he had been ‘fired as a customer’ from the Bank of America after holding an account there for eight years.

When one of the most influential venture capitalists in Silicon Valley, Roelof Botha, shared the news about his bank account being shut down without any solid explanation, assumptions started arriving that this was done because the former PayPal exec may have bought Bitcoin.

Numerous banks these days prohibit their customers from purchasing cryptocurrencies. India’s RBI (Reserve Bank of India) is a good example. Last year, it laid a so-called crypto ban on all businesses dealing with crypto in the country – mainly crypto exchanges – and forbade banks to provide services to these companies.

The same goes for many large banks in Europe and the US.

Bank of America is trialing Ripple technology

Earlier, U.Today reported that despite the negative attitude towards Bitcoin and crypto in general, BOA still embraces blockchain technology. Currently, Bank of America is testing a technology offered by the crypto giant Ripple and has even hired a team lead to run a ‘Ripple project’.

Besides, recently Ripple has hired a former BoA executive, Ben Melnicki, as head of regulatory affairs in the US.

This goes in line with many financial institutions’ strategy of embracing ‘blockchain, not Bitcoin’. The same strategy has been adopted by China recently, although many in the crypto community hope that crypto will also be allowed in the end in this country.

Shortly after that, the BTC price did rise above the aforementioned level, currently sitting at $7,444, according to CoinStats data

If the aforementioned forecast turns out to be accurate, Bitcoin traders could soon see another fakeout, which would be similar to the one that took place on Dec. 4. As reported by U.Today, BTC printed a massive green candle in less than a minute, but this unexpected pump quickly evaporated.
