BitTorrent gets praised by a crypto mover and shaker

In response to a question, what he would call a ‘metagame success’ and a long lasting case for decentralized apps, Vitalik gave a laconic answer “BitTorrent”. This is indirectly gives a bonus to Tron’s reputation, for which Justin Sun publicly thanks Vitalik. Even though the discussion took place in 2017, Justin Sun has taken this as a compliment.

Are Vitalik and Justin getting friendly to each other?

As a reminder, in spring 2018, Vitalik publicly accused Tron of plagiarizing some aspects of Ethereum’s whitepaper for Tron’s. In the course of 2018, Justin Sun and Vitalik had several public disputes on Twitter.

However, at the end of 2018, Justin Sun asked Vitalik to check the new whitepaper by tagging him in his Twitter post. After that, Vitalik seems to have adopted a more positive attitude towards Tron, BitTorrent and Justin Sun.

Mammoth-size trades

CoinMetrics claims that ‘a single committed trader’ concocted a plan to push the BTC price, and he successfully managed to do that by picking the time of the day when the global liquidity is at its lowest level.

The report also suggests that the trader started to execute his plan on HitBTC (500,000 USDT were traded for Bitcoin prior to the price movement). After that, large trades were observed on Coinbase and Bitfinex.

Focusing on the future

Meanwhile, as reported by U.Today, another theory states that the rapid price surge was triggered by the expiration of the CME futures contracts and heavy spot and over-the-counter buying. One expert went as far as claiming that a simple April joke about the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) could do the trick.

While no one is quite sure about what could have triggered the short-living rally, there is even a bigger disconnect when it comes to Bitcoin price predictions. While some share their bullish predictions for 2019, another report states that it could take 22 years for Bitcoin in order to match its current ATH of $20,000.
