Direct impact on Bitcoin?
The information on the Bakkt project has generated a lot of expectations in the cryptospace. However, Bitcoin fell shortly after publication. The direct effects on Bitcoin were hardly felt after publication. One wonders if this will result in cash-settled contracts. To date, the news has had no noticeable impact on the BTC. That happened on Sunday at the $ 7,000 mark and suffered smaller losses. Currently, the price of the BTC is $ 7,104. It is quite possible that Bakkt’s news will be published alongside the Halve and Facebook Pay messages. Successful implementation could, however, have a lasting impact on the price of BTC and provide new access to cryptocurrency.
