MALTA, June 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In the aftermath of the COVID-19 epidemic, amidst global economic downturns and rising unemployment rates, the crypto industry has been gaining great tractions – the total number of confirmed transactions per day, according to Blockchain.com, has been steadily growing since the dramatic drop of BTC in March to around 250K transactions per day; while the total trading volume on major Bitcoin exchanges has reached USD 684.4M in March. The COVID-19 pandemic undoubtedly accelerated the adoption of crypto, encouraging more people to grow trust in Bitcoin over traditional safe-haven like gold, stock market, and real estate.
