As a result of the Taproot upgrade approval by the miners and the tweets from Musk stating that Bitcoin payments will be reinstated by Tesla, keeping in view that the energy usage is clean, the price of Bitcoin crossed over $39.000 a few days ago.
The price of Bitcoin (BTC) spiked rapidly above $39,000 as an outcome of the two most important developments that took place in the market. The former was the Taproot upgrade which was approved by the Bitcoin miners on the 13th of June and its launch expected, as stated, in November. The Letter advancement relates to the tweets by Elon Musk in which he announced Tesla’s support for the Bitcoin (BTC) payments by adopting them once more as the more clean utilization of energy is done by the mining industry. Bitcoin was taken out of a lengthened clasp through a series of tweets that were made by musk at the beginning of this year relating to mining.
The support for the Bitcoin market is increasing
One of the most momentous updates in Bitcoin (BTC) in recent years is the Taproot upgrade. Its support has been signalled in the mined blocks from which 99 percent were approving. The upgrade will increase the block height to 709.632, assumingly taking place in November. One of the purposes of this Taproot update is to improve the privacy and scripting capabilities.
It was disclosed by Musk that the reinstatement of Bitcoin transactions would be made in Tesla when the Bitcoin mining industry would use 50 percent of clean energy for mining activities. This statement has somehow contributed to the price of Bitcoin, although the proof of its link with Bitcoin is hard to be explained.
Michael Saylor, the CEO of MicroStrategy, declared on 13th June that the first BMC (Bitcoin Mining Council) conference would be held soon. He invited all the Bitcoin miners to participate in the meeting. The purpose of the meeting, he stated, will be the encouragement of the relevant education to mining, the sharing of the fine practices, measures for the promotion of transparency.
On the page of the mining council, the FAQ section, it is declared that there is no role played by Elon Musk in this neither has he any involvement more than just joining with a North American group of companies through an educational call.
