Inflation Behind Bitcoin’s New $69K All-Time High, Evergrande Defaults on Interest Payments

The price of Bitcoin hit $69,000, a new record high after it reached $68.5k. Experts have opined that Bitcoin’s push to a new ATH results from investors looking to dodge rising inflation.

U.S. stock prices fell slightly Wednesday as the inflation rate in the United States hit its highest level for 30 years. The likes of Jack Dorsey and Elon Musk have voiced their fears about hyperinflation, and crypto analyst Simon Peters believes inflation is linked to Bitcoin’s ATH. He pointed out:

It is not only a sign that the market is very averse towards inflationary pressure but it also indicates that investors now use bitcoin to hedge against rising prices.
Bitcoin’s rise did not last long, as traders began taking profit, leading to a nearly $7,000 price drop. After falling to $63k, Bitcoin is making its way back. BTC currently trades at $65,183
