Although Bitcoin saw its price decrease to $30,000 last week, the number of addresses holding bitcoins has drastically risen. The largest crypto by market cap crossed over 24 million unique addresses actively sending or receiving BTC over the month.
Recently, the market continues to fall as Bitcoin reacts negatively to some news. In a meeting held last Friday, China considered strict anti-crypto regulations. China’s Financial Committee discussed ways to reduce financial risks in the country. The said council, headed by its Vice Premier Council Liu, thinks it ensures a powerful economic cycle.
Further, China has also banned financial institutions and payment firms from offering services related to crypto transactions. Besides, it urged investors over speculative crypto trading.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $34,560, according to CoinMarketCap.
