Price of BTC surges $500 after Trump orders airstrike killing commander of Iranian special forces

posted 6 months ago
Bitcoin’s price went on yet another quick rollercoaster throughout the past 24 hours. It dropped down to about $6,850 yesterday, only to get back up above $7,300 today. Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz says that it's great to see the BTC price react to global uncertainty. Interestingly enough, the move comes following a US airstrike, which had the leader of Iran’s Quds Force’s leader killed.

BTC surged by more than 5% just hours after the US airstrike killed Iran's most powerful military commander Qasem Soleimani. The price started to increase almost immediately after it was reported that an airstrike at Baghdad’s airport, ordered by the president of the United States, Donald Trump, killed the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force – General Qasem Soleimani. It's worth noting, Iran is one of the only two theocratic dictatorships in the world, the other being North Korea.
