Bitcoin surged to an all-time high against the dollar on Monday, rallying to $19,857, boosted by increased demand from both institutional and retail investors that perceives bitcoin as a safe bet and a hedge against inflation.
Sergey Nazarov, the co-founder of Chainlink, a decentralised network that provides data to smart contracts on the blockchain, told the media, “Bitcoin is a natural safe haven for those seeking shelter from rapidly increasing central bank money printing and the inflation that everyone agrees is already increasing.”
