Bitcoin {BTC} bounces back; Andreas Antonopoulos to unveil new book, Coinbase takes over Xapo


Bitcoin is the top ranked coin in the market. A boost rate of 3.53% was noted in the course of the past 24-hours. The trading volume recorded is $22.262 billion, while the supply has 17,879,100 BTC tokens in play. The total market cap of Bitcoin is $185.306 billion. At present, BTC is priced at $10,364.39. The BTC dominance rate rests at 68.8%.

Andreas Antonopoulos, a long-time proponent of the king coin, will soon release a brand-new book, “Mastering Lightning”. This will focus on the Lightning Network, which aims at improving the scalability of the Bitcoin network.

His earlier works “Mastering Bitcoin” and “Mastering Ethereum” were well-received by members of the community.

Coinbase is a leading exchange with around $7 billion in Assets under Custody [AUC]. The deal involved $55 million, says an early report. Xapo has specialized in cryptocurrency storage for the last 5 years.

Bitcoin adoption has increasingly grown in a span of months. A day ago, the king coin alongside most of the altcoins were dominated by the sellers, but has since recovered. Analysts say that the next bull run may bring BTC to new heights, even though the growth in the market has been gradual so far.

Craig Wright, the fraudulent man who claims he is the real “Satoshi Nakamoto”, has been criticized by a federal court in Florida. Craig is currently dealing with a $10 billion lawsuit against him filed by members of Dave Kleiman’s family.
