After the wave of the corona pandemic, the global economy shook and that is trying to push people toward the best tool to fight against the unstable economy. Due to the pandemic, the Federal Reserve brought new rules and systems to print unlimited fiat money to fight against the disturbed economy because of the recent pandemic situation.

The research found that many people, who were against the crypto or not supporting the crypto & Bitcoin industry, started to step in with Bitcoin to invest, to take an easy breath against inflation.
