On Tuesday (May 14th), Bitcoin once broke through $8,200, hitting its highest price in the last 10 months. In just two weeks, bitcoin price have tripled. Such fierce increase have allowed Bitcoin to outperform the world’s major stock markets and become the world’s best performing asset.
According to cryptocurrency experts, the rise of Bitcoin stems from the restructuring of global risk assets and the expansion of crypto-asset investment approaches. Market volatility, such as securities and foreign exchange has intensified in recent days, and global investors are looking for assets that can be hedged. While the traditional safe-haven asset gold is more dependent on the real economy and inflation expectations, the bitcoin of the asset-sensitive index has a asset hedging advantage.
Many technological innovations are also injecting nutrients into the cryptocurrency market, such as DeFi (Decentralized Finance). Using this technology, entrepreneurs in the encryption industry can reshape traditional financial instruments in a decentralized architecture.
At the same time, from May 13th to May 15th, the annual Coindesk New York Consensus Conference was also held as scheduled, attracting head companies, developers, entrepreneurs and investors from the global blockchain industry. As the annual event of the blockchain world, since 2015, the annual Consensus has attracted much attention.

After the end of the 2015 and 2016 consensus conferences, BTC prices achieved a strong rise in less than two months;
After the 2017 consensus meeting, although the BTC price increase seems to be less than the performance of the previous two years, in the second half of 2017, the BTC surged from less than 2,000 US dollars to 19,000 US dollars;
During the warm-up period of the 2018 conference, BTC quickly rise, with an increase of more than 8%. During the meeting, all the gains were retreated.
It seems that all previous consensus conferences will cause bitcoin’s quite obvious fluctuations. Whether this consensus conference is the main reason for pushing up the bitcoin is not known.
But we know that value comes from consensus. The rise in bitcoin price is not the utopian imagination of geeks, nor the rich dreams of retail investors, but the solid consensus of the whole community. The core reason why Bitcoin will have such a “high-spirited” rise is because it has been widely recognized by the public.
