Will the Bitcoin price ‘Moon’ if there is a war with Iran?

Iran-based sellers on peer-to-peer trading platform LocalBitcoins are currently asking for around 1 billion Iranian rials or over $24,000 per Bitcoin (BTC), based on the official exchange rate from the country’s central bank. 

Founder of crypto analytics outlet Messari, Ryan Selkis wrote:

“Bitcoin is trading at nearly $24,000 in the USD equivalent of Iranian Rials on LocalBitcoins today. It’s unlikely those purchases are paying for the Iranian military’s response. Instead, it might be innocent (and desperate) Iranians looking for a way out of the coming chaos.”

While the BTC price was on the decline for the second half of 2019, the reality is the crypto asset still roughly doubled in value over the course of the entire year.

In fact, there were only two major cryptocurrencies that outperformed Bitcoin in 2019. On Friday morning, Nexo co-founder Antoni Trenchev told Bloomberg’s Matt Miller why he thinks the Bitcoin price could continue to rise to the $50,000 mark in 2020.

“I think that, very easily, we could see Bitcoin going up to $50,000 by the end of this year,” said Trenchev.
