Since the recent crypto market rally started last month, various cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether (ETH) have been setting new records in succession. Recently, BTC set a new all-time high when the crypto soared past $69,000 for the first time ever.

Bitcoin set a new all-time high on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, when the crypto traded at $69,044 shortly after 9:15 a.m. ET based on CoinGecko data, Forbes reported. However, other crypto price tracking sites reported slightly lower BTC ATHs with Coindesk data showing an all-time of $68,990.90 while CoinMarketCap reported an ATH of $68,789.63.

BTC’s price surged by around $2,500 or 4 percent in less than an hour after the Labor Department released its monthly consumer price index report. The increase in consumer prices is higher than expected at 6.2 percent in October on a yearly basis, the highest on record since December 1990.

Worries about higher inflation have spurred the adoption of BTC has inflationary hedge. “The re-emergence of inflation concerns among investors during September/October 2021 appears to have renewed interest in the usage of bitcoin as an inflation hedge,” JPMorgan analyst Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou said. The investment bank also reiterated its long-term price prediction for Bitcoin at $146,000 adding that it could reach $73,000 by 2022.

The bank also noted that some investors are now buying Bitcoin instead of gold, the traditional safe-haven asset. “Bitcoin’s allure as an inflation hedge has perhaps been strengthened by the failure of gold to respond in recent weeks to heightened concerns over inflation,” Panigirtzoglou added.

Part of this allure is BTC’s strong performance compared to the precious metal. “Bitcoin has outperformed gold, the most widely regarded inflation hedge, by a considerable margin year-to-date, having gained over 130% compared with gold’s 4% decline,” Cointelegraph business editor Sam Bourgi said.

However, Bitcoin only briefly traded above $69,000 after setting its new all-time high. In fact, the crypto plunged nearly $7,000 to below $63,000 shortly after. At the time of writing, Bitcoin has slightly recovered and traded at $63,672.67 per coin.

I have been working for a year plus to get my credit to 700plus, I felt pretty bad when I checked there wasn’t any improvement. One delighted evening after I closed from work, I sketch through the internet trying to figure out how to bring up my score, I came across lot of articles/testimonies of different kind and one caught my attention speaking and recommending a particular hacking company named TROVIAN CREDIT REPAIR. I quickly write out the details [email protected] or text; +1 (424) 307 4562 and contacted them; thereafter they replied and told me they are fully back in service. To cut the long story short they started with the repair and got my score to exactly 799 and remove all the negative items replacing them with awesome trade lines. Get in touch with them via the above contacts and get your credit perfectly fixed.

Need you’ll to know COINWALLETRECOUP DOT COM, they’re the Best Crypto Recovery firm out there. i was scammed by a forex website Tradestation to be precise to the tune 0f $153,700. was firstly informed that ill be able to withdraw 11.5% roi weekly from the second month of membership and if i invest more, the roi could be increased by 4.5%. i later invested $17,300 to make it a total of $170,000.
After the whole investment, i was only able to make a withdrawal for the first week, then after was told  to invest more to withdraw more but told them that i wasnt interested and wanted to continue with the current roi plan but was told that i wouldnt be able to withdrawal till i invest that was when i saw the red flag and told them i wasnt interested anymore but not surprised by their act i couldnt make any withdrawal again. I told a friend and he referred me to Coinwalletrecoup dot com and withing a week of our contact i was able to withdraw all my funds in addition to my roi for the whole planned duration of 9 months advance payment.
