Edward Snowden is yet another prominent Bitcoin proponent, who lives in exile and often publicly comments on current events via Twitter. This time he wasn’t concerned about the state of affairs with FTX and all the buzz that is going through the media, but with the current price of Bitcoin.
Why is Snowden getting itchy to buy Bitcoin at this price range and who else is on his side with that assessment?
Last week Snowden made a couple of remarks regarding the price action of Bitcoin and the overall market. He reminded his audience that the last time when he felt like buying Bitcoin and publicly tweeted about it, the bottom of the Corona crash was reached.
It is important to remember that Snowden is not a financial advisor and has no exclusive insights into the crypto market. According to him, he feels that it is time to scale back into Bitcoin which is revealing two things. First, Snowden is not invested or sold his position earlier and second, that he is not thinking about buying here, but rather slowly adding to his position and building it up.
This also leaves the clue that he is aware that it is still possible for the Bitcoin price to go down further. Nevertheless, he would start buying at the current price levels we have seen over the last few days.
Snowden is not alone with his assessment. It was yesterday when El Salvador announced that the country would start today buying 1 BTC per day. Justin Sun was quick and pledge to do the same alongside of El Salvadors president Nayib Bukele.
Elon Musk also shared his view recently on Bitcoin and of course on Dogecoin, which is clearly his favorite. According to Musk, Bitcoin could see more pain in the coming weeks but he is also sure that the mother of all cryptocurrencies will recover at some point in the future.
Nobody can predict what the future holds and if Bitcoin is going to recover swiftly. It seems that the support for BTC is unbroken not only among true believers, but also among those who have voice that his heard by millions of people worldwide. With that being said, we soon will find out if Snowden’s approach to technical analysis turns out to be correct or not.

Africa is one of the places where many blockchain related projects promise to change things for the better. Cardano has entered partnerships in Ethiopia and Tanzania to educate developers and offer blockchain-based solutions in several fields. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is open-source and not driven by a single company unlike Cardano, but there are still players which expect that Bitcoin will make a positive impact on the continent.

Since the fall of FTX, the number of times influential people have claimed Bitcoin or crypto will die, has gone up. But it is still remarkable that the number of these so-called 'Bitcoin obituaries' is in a downtrend. Are the sceptics less sure of their case?

In a blog post called Bitcoin's last stand, the ECB has revealed its negative stance towards Bitcoin. It views the current relative price stability as 'an artificially induced last gasp before the road to irrelevance'. The attack came at a day on which it also attacked the new uncensored Twitter.
