In the Bitcoin blockchain, the commission has grown to $ 2, US pensioners are investing in cryptocurrency. Exchange Binance reported a profit growth of 66%.
Over the past month, the cost of a transaction in the Bitcoin network has more than doubled. For half a year it was kept at about $ 0.5, but now the transfer will require at least $ 1. And in some cases, the price rises to $ 2. The amount seems significant, however it is not. If we consider that the average size of a transaction in the Bitcoin blockchain exceeds $ 20,000, the deductions for the transfer are less than 0.1%.
The maximum value of the commission amount reached $ 50. This happened in a period of rapid growth in the price of 2017. In just one day, the blockchain processes more than 330,000 transactions, since 2017 this indicator is at a stable level.
Of the 1,000 pensioners surveyed in the United States, 27 were Bitcoin owners. A study of the Gold IRA Guide agency showed that 56.7% of respondents have general information about cryptocurrency, and 32.9% said they were not informed.
According to the study, another 3.5% are willing to invest in Bitcoin, but they lack knowledge. According to research by Kaspersky Lab, more than 8% of the world's population has already bought cryptocurrency. However, almost a third of residents have no idea about this asset. The fact that US retirees began to invest in Bitcoins may serve as a signal to increase the demand for this asset from pension and insurance funds.
Binance CFO Wei Zhou said that over the past month the turnover in the over-the-counter cryptocurrency market has risen very strongly. This was reflected in the earnings of the trading floor, which increased by 66% in the first quarter. Wei Zhou noted that small marketplaces became the main buyers. Their number has increased significantly, the cryptocurrency market has become very attractive for businessmen.
Against this background, the Binance token BNB has also grown. He set a new high at $ 26. This cryptocurrency was able to rise above the historical record of $ 24.60, which was recorded more than a year ago. The situation was influenced not only by the financial report for the first quarter, but also by attempts to entice companies from the Ethereum platform to Binance Chain.
