- “Bitcoin seems to have bounced back today as cryptocurrency markets start the week in a resurgent mood,” Paolo Ardoino, the CTO of Bitfinex said in an investor’s note on Monday. The backdrop of huge pent-up institutional demand and interest from long-term investors may be here to say, but time will tell,” Ardoino added.
- The Bitfinex CTO further said: “Those drawing parallels to the bursting of the crypto bubble in 2017 may not be accounting for the technology’s advancement since then. We believe the technological infrastructure of the space as a whole is proving itself to be robust.”
