Bitcoin and Macroeconomic Factors

Bitcoin has gained notable attention in the global economy following huge adoption by institutional investors and international recognition after El Salvador’s adoption as a legal tender. From a negative perspective, more attention means more regulations which reciprocate to more hit by geopolitical uncertainty and differences.

As we speak, Russia and its neighbors are not on good terms, including NATO comprises the United States, Canada, and other nuclear military-equipped governments.

From a positive perspective, more institutional investors and regulations mean the industry grows immensely in the future. For instance, the older generation that was previously skeptical of crypto is venturing into blockchain-related businesses including the DeFi ecosystem, Metaverse, and the NFT market.

Large tech companies including Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) have shown interest in the metaverse sector through blockchain technology. Of note, Warren Buffett-backed Berkshire Hathaway Inc (NYSE: BRK) is a long-term investor in Apple with a market share stake of approximately 5.41 percent.

Most importantly, geopolitical tensions that affect the global fuel supply chain and electric production have an endpoint effect on Bitcoin through its hashrate.
