The present convention even drove the Financial Times to distribute an article called Coronavirus is Good for Bitcoin, which went under a great deal of analysis. Without a doubt, Bitcoin is turning into a place of refuge resource, for the most part since it remains to a great extent uncorrelated with conventional resources, for example, the S&P500 and gold.
