The hysteria around the bitcoine and the cryptocurrency market continues to spread, tightening more people in his funnel. Paul Krugman, American economist, the Nobel Prize winner in 2008 economy believes that the so-called bitcoan community is nothing more than a cult that holds exclusively at the blind faith of its members. If this faith suddenly begins — Bitcoin and all his investors are waiting for the collapse. The fact that Bitcoin actually has zero cost, as it is not related to real economies, they say other well-known economists and large businessmen.
Despite the fact that last week, Bitcoin annulled all the accumulations of 2021, it was not afraid of investors — on the contrary, attracted them even more.
