Tom Lee Bitcoin price in relations to Iran, US tension
Taking a peep into Bitcoin price, the crypto has experienced a surge this year when there was ongoing tension between Iran and the US. However, as soon as the tension eased between both countries the crypto price began to crash.
Forbes reported earlier in January when tension was building between both countries that the crypto has risen 15% in 2020 and added 5% to its value. The 5% increase was primarily attributed to news of the event when Iran launched a missile attack on US led forces in Iraq. However, after U.S. President Donald Trump’s comments downplaying the situation in Iran the crypto began to drop.
