Bitcoin (BTC) held up over the weekend, more or less holding support at around $ 13,000 after last week’s bull run. This was, of course, influenced by an announcement from PayPal (NasdaqGS: PYPL) on October 21 that a crypto trading service was about to debut. As of press time, the flagship cryptocurrency is trading for around $ 13,200, according to data from CoinMarketCap.
This recent rise in Bitcoin was addressed in a note dated October 23 from JPMorgan (NYSE: JPM), according to a Business Insider article. An excerpt from the note reads:
“Cryptocurrencies gain value not only because they serve as deposits of wealth, but also because of their usefulness as a means of payment. The more economic agents accept cryptocurrencies as a means of payment in the future, the greater their usefulness and value.”
A further excerpt reads:
“The long-term upside potential for bitcoin is considerable as it competes more intensely with gold as an ‘alternative’ currency, we believe, as Millennials would over time become a more important component of the investor universe.”
Bitfarms Ltd. (TSXV: BITF) has signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a private power producer to use up to 200 MW of electricity in South America at an average price of 2 US cents per kilowatt hour. Bitfarms interim CEO Emiliano Grodzki explained:
“As previously announced, during the fiscal second quarter of 2020, Bitfarm’s average electricity cost to mine one Bitcoin (in USD) was US $ 5,075. Under the terms of the MOU and under the same prevailing conditions, our cost would have been about half which would be about US $ 2,538 per Bitcoin before amortization of infrastructure costs. This simple example demonstrates the significant competitive advantage that comes with having access to a large amount of low-cost energy. level, this would make Bitfarm one of the lowest-cost Bitcoin miners in the world. “
