There is a relatively certain regulatory structure.

Even some politicians are outspoken about how they think Bitcoin is a good thing for society.”

Held believes that if Bitcoin is closely following its 2013 path, the number one cryptocurrency will likely trade sideways for a bit longer before ultimately taking off for new all-time highs in the last quarter of 2021. On Twitter he further backed his claims by stating the following:
